This is sad. No parent should be happy these kids are in trouble. I feel much sympathy for them and their parents. I know in the high school my daughter attends kids smoke pot daily during school day it's awful they should be suspended. But why kick them off a team? Let them sit out at games watching their team during their suspension.
Let them attend drug lectures because the larger concern should be that they understand kids are dying from laced drugs. Let them use their free time to volunteer in programs for younger kids in their town pal programs.
But I would cry also if I was the coach cause he is probably sad that these boys are being used as the example. kids are making these poor choices everyday everywhere but punishment could be better by learning to correct what they did wrong without damaging a young mans future.
