As I was just talking about the quality of teachers and how we need to raise the standard for those who choose to be an educator, this comes to my email.

A Georgia middle school teacher was arrested for allowing her students to “puff, puff, pass.”

Per AJC

Forty-year-old Teasley Middle School teacher Christine Cantrell was arrested with her husband in Atlanta on Tuesday after allegedly letting minors get high in her home. According to cops, her students ratted her out after their parents tipped off the police.

Phil Price, the commander of the Cherokee County Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that “concerned parents provided the first tip of the illegal activity and middle school students later confirmed to investigators the Cantrells’ involvement.” It’s not clear how long this was going on or “how many students were involved.”

Cantrell was charged with possession of marijuana less than one ounce, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and keeping a disorderly house, which are all misdemeanors. She’s been removed from her classroom by the school pending an investigation.

Price told the Journal-Constitution, “She deals with a lot of people at an impressionable age. Whatever her beliefs are about the use of marijuana, it is still against the law in Georgia.”

sidenote: I’d be hella warped if I was a student today at public school. These teachers are like students
