    This is nothing compared to what is really going on in schools. I don’t care what anyone says this is always going on. The biggest part of being a teen is to explore new experiences. But for 16 kids to just roll over on each other, well that’s the sad thing. How many cops say and asked every student if they were taking it or not. Not to mention the doctors mostly prescribe it to teens anyway. This is blown out of proportion.
