The Canandaigua City School District is taking serious measures to address marijuana-laced e-cigarettes.
In a notice sent out to parents of students of Canandaigua Academy, Principal Vernon Tenney states that all e-cigarettes will be tested for marijuana and students in possession of such items will be suspended with the evidence turned over to the school resource officer.
“If a child is found in possession of an e-cigarette that tests positive for marijuana, we will assign a suspension and make a request for a Superintendent Hearing. We will also turn the device over to the school resource officer,” states Tenney in the school newsletter to parents. “At no time, under any circumstances will we return an e-cigarette or Juul or associated paraphernalia to a student. These items are illegal to possess and are a violation of the school code of conduct.”
