Student Suspended for Selling Illicit “Full-Sugar” Pepsi Out of His Locker

Editors Opinion – I am willing to be more then a case of Pepsi that this schools cafeteria serves Chocolate Milk and considers it healthy.  This is in spite of the fact that a single serving of chocolate milk in a school has a total of 4 added teaspoons of sugar.  In fact ounce for ounce chocolate milk has more sugar than Pepsi or Coke.  You can learn more about how much sugar we feed our children in flavored milk here.

So what is the solution here?  Put the decision back into parents hands.  Let kids eat and drink what they want if parents provide it do them.  They are of course the parents children, not the states, right?  The mom was right, it was a good business move!  We should ask why though.  Without the prohibition there would be no such opportunity.  There is a lesson to be learned there, a big one.

Alberta high school student Keenan Shaw was suspended for two days after he got caught selling an illicit substance from his locker at Winston Churchill his school. Weed? Nope. Booze? Nope. Acid? Nope.

Shaw says all those treats (and more) are on offer in the school’s corridors:

“I’m not going to name any names, but I know a couple of people selling marijuana, there’s kids selling smokes, there was a kid last year selling meth, as well as a kid selling acid,” said Shaw.

But his drug of choice is full-sugar Pepsi. Commerce in the sweet, sweet drink is banned at his school, which allows only diet sodas to be sold on premises.
