Pot smoking before school

My Ds who just started 9th grade told me that there are kids who smoke pot at the bus stop before school at 6:45. You would think we lived in the city but this is a typical suburb. I know that kids drink beer in the woods behind my house but my older DD never just "hung out" in the woods. Yes, I do know that she tried alcohol when she was in high school and it was at people's houses--I'm not that naive. But it amazes me that people would be so blatant to smoke pot in the day time right out in public. I really pity high school teachers. And he said that he doesn't go to the bathroom in school (and only has a little water at lunch) cause kids are there either smoking cigarettes or pot! There is not even supposed to be smoking of cigarettes anywhere on school property which is why if you drive by in the a.m. you see a huddle of kids on the sidewalk just off school grounds smoking. Just another thing for me to worry about!
I read conmama's post with interest because he said the girls who did it have ADD and they said they are on Adderal & that's why they smoke. I really don't get the connection of how the 2 drugs interact.
I live in MA and now possession of a small amt. of pot is not criminal any more, it's just a fine. But aside from that, possession of certain drugs w/in 1 mile of a school has a higher penalty & we live w/in a mile of the elementary school.
