A teen at a Sarnia, Ont., secondary school who picked a bad day to get high before class ended up shamed and suspended.
A Sarnia police officer was at a local high school to talk to Grade 9s about drug-use Monday morning.
As the officer was walking down the hallway — which was mostly empty as the national anthem played — they smelt a strong marijuana odour while passing a lone male student at his locker, police said.
The student, 15, admitted he had just smoked pot — the reason he was in the deserted hallway while his peers were in class.
He handed over his stash, a single joint, to the officer, police said.
The officer took the teen to the principal’s office, where the student’s parents were called and he was slapped with a three-day suspension.
