Colorado drug dealers, aged 10, supply marijuana to classmates

A Colorado school has caught two ten-year-old pupils selling marijuana to their classmates.

The two boys pilfered the weed from their grandparents' supplies of legally purchased pot in separate incidents at the same school, a district official said.

The boys were not in the "Breaking Bad" league, however, and only made $11 on the deals before being found out.

The principal of the school, Jennifer Sheldon, sent a letter home to parents informing them of the incidents, noting that "disciplinary action is underway" for the involved students.

"We urge all parents, grandparents and anyone who cares for children to treat marijuana as you would prescription drugs, alcohol, or even firearms," the letter said. "This drug is potentially lethal to children and should always be kept under lock and key, away from young people."

Police say the youngsters will not face charges because under Colorado law, children aged ten or younger cannot be held criminally responsible for their actions.

In any case, he added: "By the time the school even became aware of it, all the evidence was gone ."
