A police investigation of an incident in which a juvenile was selling cannabis on school grounds has allegedly revealed the adult who was supplying the drugs.

The juvenile in question was arrested in late March.

In another police Facebook post dated Mar. 29, a school resource officer at Greenfield High School began investigating reports of a 17-year-old student selling drugs to other students on campus.

The following day, officers with the Greenfield and Soledad police departments served a search warrant at the student’s home and, simultaneously, contacted the student at school.

That was when the pupil was found with cannabis vape pens, pre-rolled joints and more than $364 in cash. In the home, “officers recovered packaged marijuana vape pens, a scale, a smoking pipe, a cell phone labeled ‘trap phone’ and over ($1,950) in cash,” the statement notes.

The student was then arrested for illegal transport of marijuana and possession of cannabis with the intent to sell.

Also in late March in Louisiana, a high school student was caught with just shy of 525 grams of cannabis inside a parked vehicle on school grounds. The student was found out when a K-9 officer picked up the skunky scent during a routine patrol of parking areas around the facility.

Recreational cannabis is legal in California, but only for those aged 21 and older. These adults are allowed to possess as much as 28.5 grams of cannabis or up to eight grams of concentrated cannabis, per FindLaw.

“Possession of marijuana or concentrated cannabis on the grounds of any K-12 school while school is in session, is illegal, notes Shouse California Law Group. That charge for accused 18 and older could result in a misdemeanour charge and a fine of up to $325 for a first offence, the information adds.
