Teacher learns a lesson: Don’t bring your weed to school!

​Talk about higher education! A staff member at Harden Middle School in Salinas, Calif., found a bag of marijuana, but it didn’t belong to one of the students.

A staffer who found an unattended backpack in the quad area of the school noticed a strong odor of marijuana. School officials inspected the backpack, and discovered a baggie containing marijuana along with a pipe.
After reviewing tape from surveillance cameras, school staffers found that 70-year-old Harry Williams, a substitute teacher, had set the backpack down when he rested on a bench. When he got up to leave, he forgot the backpack.
After being questioned, Williams admitted it was his weed; he said he forgot it was in his backpack when he came to school. Williams said he’s a medical marijuana patient with a doctor’s note allowing him to use the herb.
Williams was cited for possession of marijuana on school grounds. School staff sent him home after the incident, according to KION 46 Central Coast News.
