This gets a teacher jailed, but deliberately infecting them with a dangerous virus... doesn't?
What does this have to do with covid though?

She honestly should be charged with endangering a minor. Edibles are very dangerous for young children.

Nah, crimes should be levied based off the actual reality of what happened, not hypotheticals. Hypothetically half her class could have been high as balls and sure charge her with endangering minors, however what actually happened is at most they held the packaging and these aren't cane toads they're grabbing.

Endangerment quite literally deals with what could have happened, though. That's why it's endangerment and not a different crime. If the kid actually ate them, that'd be a different crime. The fact they could have had she not noticed, and thus that possibility existed, is quite literally misdemeanor endangerment.

Like, if she had a gun sitting out and a kid picked it up, you wouldn't say "Nah, don't charge her with endangerment, he didn't shoot it." Obviously that's much more severe, and would likely be a higher charge of it, but the point remains.

In fact, I'd wager the reason they're leaning into the drug charges instead is so they can use it as a statistic for more war on drugs bulls***.

Okay it seems like this was a mistake, and nobody was hurt.

Sucks, but at least she took steps to mitigate and fix the error.

Read the next line. "The student went back to the box and happened to grab another pack of edibles."

Thankfully, no students ate them.

Sheriff Jay Koon said, "detectives confirmed during interviews that Weiss took the pack of edibles from the student and told him to pick something else from the box. The student went back to the box and happened to grab another pack of edibles. No student ate any of the products.”

Seems pretty clear what happened here. Kid got high on her supply.

16 year old me feels for this teacher.... but the rest of me agrees that bringing her edibles to school was a bad decision.

No one got hurt thankfully.

It's about the hypocrisy of drug laws and the severity of punishment meted out compared to real crimes that actually endanger people and children.

Like intentionally being a vector for a contagion.

It needs context, though. A child holding the wrapping of a candy bar shouldn't be considered "endangerment" in the same vein as a teacher bringing their gun to class and wearing it on their hip, which depending on the state would have people calling them a "prepared teacher", not that I agree with it.

I agree it's far more severe, but like I said above I don't really consider them even remotely similar and this is why context to crimes matters more than people give it credit.

An unwrapped candy bar is in no way comparable to a loaded gun children have access too and calling them both endangerment just cause the law may allow it removes important context relating to the reality of what actually happened. If she had left the room and the candy was unattended, I may be inclined to agree, but as soon as she realized what happened she stopped the child from even unwrapping it, is my understanding, and an unwrapped edible is just a piece of usually glossy paper they're holding and I don't think anybody should be charged because a child held a wrapped piece of candy. I don't see that as endangering a child, more like an absent-minded mistake that could have ended a lot worse than it did.

You may be right, however this is the more appropriate crime to charge her with. Even in states with full legalization those rights are relegated to private property and a public school is not a private entity/property that can authorize teachers having those products even in legalized states even if they wanted to.

Though I will say I'm rather peeved that they used her turning herself in to search her house and seize her edibles, which based off the article sounds like what actually led to her charge, what they found at her house. She tried owning up to a mistake and the cops used that to f*** her life over as hard as they could based off the circumstances.
