Since when is CANDY an Illegal Substance?

School clears kids in contraband candy caper - CNN.com:
"Michael Sheridan, an eighth-grade honors student who was suspended for a day, barred from attending an honors dinner and stripped of his title as class vice president after he was caught with a bag of Skittles candy in school will get his student council post back, school officials said.
Superintendent Reginald Mayo said in a statement late Wednesday that he and principal Eleanor Turner met with student Michael's parents and that Turner decided to clear the boy's record and restore him to his student council post.
Michael was disciplined after he was caught buying a bag of Skittles from a classmate. The classmate's suspension also will be expunged, school officials said"
Okay now first -- there is a drug out there that the kids call "Skittles" but this isn't about that. This is about the same bag of skittles you can get at any grocery store, convenience store, movie theater, etc. But apparently in New Haven, CT its punishable by 'life'.

Just think what this little incident could have done to this boy's plans for college and career because he has a suspension on his record. He could pretty much count out an Ivy-League school ... so what would be the point of his maintaining an Honor's GPA???

This is just STU---PID!!!! I'm glad they reversed their decision!
