4th Grader Sells Weed, Makes $11 Profit

A fourth grader has been arrested for selling weed to three schoolmates at a Colorado elementary school. Yeah, you read that right.

The boy, a 10-year-old student at Monfort Elementary School in Greeley, Colorado, was busted for selling small amounts of edible marijuana to three other fourth graders, reports the Associated Press

“He sold it to three other fourth graders on the school playground, which resulted in a profit to the young man of $11,” John Gates, director of safety and security for the Greeley-Evans School District, told ABC News. He only made $11 in profit.

How bad is the Obama economy that a 10-year-old boy has to peddle drugs on the playground to his underaged classmates?

The minors who were involved, three 10-year-old boys and a 10-year-old girl, faced tough discipline and would be suspension but not expelled. The AP also report that one of the kids tried a small amount of the edible marijuana.

According to the report, the marijuana the boy sold was legally purchased by his grandparents. The child parents bought the dope after Colorado legalized the recreational use of marijuana for adults over the age of 21.
