Students and Pot

"6 Chaska students face pot charges" (Strib) started out mentioning the junior high students and their charges and talked about how drug sales and use in this age group has declined over the past decade. Then it talked about possible consequences for the students. It mentioned some impersonal stats but it did not go into what the school is doing to raise awareness or drug programs they have at the junior high level. Then at the end the author mentioned a Washington state couple who was arrested for marijuana possession. This had no other connection to the story except that it involved weed charges. It was an awkward way to end the piece.
