Several weeks ago, I had a call from a mother who had learned that two local middle school students had been taken to the emergency room for ingesting gummy bears laced with marijuana.  Should we expect to see more incidents like this?  Sadly, the answer is probably “Yes.”  Although it may have gone somewhat overlooked […]
