A Gateway Drug

Some parents in Independence have been warned by school officials to watch out for something called "Happy Crack.""Happy Crack" isn't actually a drug; it is a mix of powdered Kool-Aid and sugar that kids carry around in plastic bags.The principal at Glendale Elementary stated in a letter sent to parents that kids have been buying, selling, eating and snorting the mixture in behavior that "mimics a drug culture."A group of fifth-graders got in trouble for using it.

I don't really have much to say on this one. Do you think this is a symptom of societal problems or kids just being kids?
