Sonora Kids' Marijuana Incident Makes International News

Sonora, CA -- The Sonora Police Department has released new details on the three Sonora Elementary students caught smoking pot. Sonora Police Chief Mark Stinson says they do not know how or where the two 8-year-olds and a 9-year-old got the pot. However, if someone gave it to them they could face charges.
"The investigation is still continuing so it will depend on what our investigation leads to, but there could be charges for contributing to the delinquency of a minor," says Chief Stinson.
When asked if the parents of the students could face legal issues, Chief Stinson replied, "It's possible."
The incident happened last Thursday morning just after 11 at the school. Police report the third graders were smoking the marijuana in a school bathroom when another student walked in. That student told school officials, who then contacted police.
