Our war on seasonings

Somebody should inform Law Enforcement. "Herb" might ben an euphemism for marijuana, but not all herbs are illicit drugs. Not even when they're stored in plastic baggies.
PALM COAST -- Two Flagler County elementary school pupils were arrested last week after pretending a plastic bag of parsley was marijuana.

An arrest report by Cpl. Don Apperson, a school resource deputy with the Flagler County Sheriff's Office, said the two girls, each 10-year-old pupils at Old Kings Elementary School, were showing classmates a plastic bag with a green leafy substance they said was marijuana.

School officials learned of the alleged bag of marijuana and called the girls into a conference with their parents. The girls admitted they did not have marijuana and said that the bag of parsley, which they brought to school in their book bags, was a prank, the report said.
Of course, the parsley baggie was just a gateway prank. If we don't crack down on this sort of thing, it's only a matter of time before they start using baking soda as make-believe heroine.
