If a student shows up drunk at school police can intervene, but if they're stoned the current law doesn't allow police to do much. 

 

A new bill in Salem tries to address this inconsistency by fining or putting parents and guardians in jail if they allow their kids to use drugs and go to school.

 

Bend Police Lt. Chris Carney says its a growing problem among students and also says smoking pot is much more dangerous than it has been in the past. 

 

"We like to say it's not your grandfather's marijuana anymore -- its not the same substance you would've smoked in 1960 - the thc levels are much higher- its much more potent- some  of the worst duii cases i've seen have been people under the influence of marijuana - but its there was no alcohol on board- i was shocked...because the person was so impaired, i figured there had to be alcohol involved - but there was not."

 

The Bill calls for a $1250 dollar fine- 30 days in jail - or both.  Bend La Pine school resource officers say they are seeing a shift from students using alcohol to mahy using drugs instead - and not just marijuana - but harder drugs as well.
