Kindergartner Unwittingly Turns In Mom for Drug Use

Who knew Show and Tell was just another way for The Man to get kids to testify against their parents?

I would advise all children out there to refuse to participate in Show and Tell without their lawyer present.

Yes, this is a tragic event that should not be the subject of crass humor; the real reason I posted on it was that the dateline is from Sweet Springs, MO, which is the only place along I-70 to Kansas City where you can get Diet Rite cola ($$ Casey's Mini Mart $$).

From STLToday: 

Boy brings mom's crack pipe to Missouri kindergarten show-and-tell 

 SWEET SPRINGS, Mo. • Officials at a small northwest Missouri elementary school say they were stunned when a kindergarten student brought his mom's crack pipe and some drugs for show-and-tell.

KCTV reports that the boy showed the items on Sept. 6 at Sweet Springs Elementary School. School officials called police.

The boy's 32-year-old mother was arrested and is charged with possession of a controlled substance and child endangerment.

Court records indicate that the teacher told police that the boy had the pipe and "several baggies of crack rocks." Officials say the drugs were worth about $3,700.

A family friend told KCTV5 that the boy is being cared for by relatives.
