First of all teaching them responsible use? Are you serious? What are you advocating? Sitting with your kids and smokin a joint? Doing shots?

Both are illegal according to the law.

You see the difference was, back in the day I know my parents had a zero tolerance policy, made sure as [lacrosse] didn't do something as boneheaded as bringing drugs on a school sanctioned event. The wrath from parents was way worse than what school would have dished out.

I have my own opinion about this unfortunate situation in GC, I am keeping it to myself (as should all of you) I am using it as a learning experience and conversation started with my kids.

No the losers are the rest of the team that those players let down. They deserve everything coming there way. Hard lesson but maybe it will help them in the long run. I just hope AD and school does the right thing.

My heart goes out to their parents. They are the ones who truly know exactly what is at stake.

I am a city kid who moved to LI to give my children a better life. Lacrosse is a part of that life. It is because of lacrosse that my son is attending a phenomenal school -- he will graduate and get a tremendous job -- all while playing the game he loves.

I am sure those parents lectured their sons about the dangers of drugs, drinking, bullying, texting while driving, unprotected sex, the list goes on.....

However, their sons are boys. No matter how many school assemblies they attended, how many times they saw stories on the news, they did not believe they would be caught --- why??? Because they are just boys.

I am not making excuses. I am not condoning their actions. I believe they should have consequences.

I am sad for their parents. I am sure, they are loosing sleep over this.

I think he means it in the sense that the rest of the team "lost" here, that they're also paying for the crimes of a few.

I agree with you. All kids will drink or try things, but when parents have a zero tolerance policy I think that makes a big difference. Nowadays parents will let kids drink in their home, or by beer for them bc they want to be their kids friend. That is selfish of the parents. The kids have their own friends. Parents need to be parents. Obviously the kids who got caught during football season then sued the district to let him play in the lax season was sent the wrong message. There is zero accountability. It's really a shame for the rest of the boys on that team.

BINGO... yes I am advocated to scare the leaving [lacrosse] out of the kid. Do what you want behind closed doors that a cop from 1970 -80 would say okay just know your limits..

Some of these boys are 18, Legal adults, I don't think smoking pot is that big of a deal, Hek it's legal in some states. They just should have used better judgment, did it outside of School sponsored events! Are you going to pretend these kids are not drinking either? You all did it when you were their age! When I was a HS senior we went out to lunch, had a beer, then went back to class, all legal back in the good old days. People way uptite about everything!


Drop the pipe dude. You gotta be kidding me!

So I am guessing that when you were in HS and had a beer or two at lunch, you were walking or driving back to school?....sure all those folks that were on the road were happy that a 17/18 year old kid was on the roads after having a lunch beer or two...well done!

That is the GC way. Your kid gets in trouble and they lawyer up. Good lesson to teach your kids. And of course the school folds immediately. Not the first time won't be the last.

Hey GC kids if your parents ever decide to discipline you just want to let you know you can lawyer up for emotional distress or abuse. Your defense would be you are not use to taking responsibility for your actions.

You sure have a huge chip on your shoulder about GC. Might want to tone it down a bit. You come across as an idiot. You think you know what goes on in someone else's home? The boys did a monumentally stupid thing. They got caught and will pay the price. And they should. You may have to eat humble pie someday. Most teens something stupid at some point in HS

Ehhh? A beer does not make you drunk, perfectly legal to drive. Everything in moderation. Was never a pot smoker my self. Tried it but didn't care for it. I made that decision on my own, not because my parents forbid it. Was that you I saw at the restaurant the other night enjoying a bottle of wine, and then driving home? Don't see the crime here. It's the abusers who have ruined things for everyone else. And yea, I'm talking to you too lax mom too, driving around with your phone in your hand on the way to drop off you kid at the drivers safety course!
