A 12-year-old boy caught dealing drugs outside a Pennsylvania school this week must have had a sweet tooth.
TV news station WPXI reports that the New Castle sixth-grader was turned in to school administrators at the George Washington Intermediate School after classmates saw him trading marijuana with adults for candy.
The boy admitted to investigators that on several occasions he stole marijuana from his stepfather and used it to trade for candy, which I guess is better than if it was the other way around (but not by much).
Police searched the stepfather's home, where they discovered six bags of marijuana in a freezer.
The boy has been suspended from school and is expected to be tried as a juvenile. His stepfather was not so lucky and faces felony drug charges.
