Reader: Are teachers really too clueless to notice kids smoking pot using vape pens?

Our post about reports of students consuming marijuana in class using vape pens generated lots of strong reactions.

Here's a post by a reader who's equally tough on teachers and vape-pen users.

Ash Taylor writes:

You can smell and see vapor. If a teacher isn't able to identify a student smoking in class, well then they are straight up sensory deprived. If a kid's dumb enough to smoke in class and get caught, well fuck him, obviously he's got a bunch of great life decisions ahead of him to make.

As the child of Teachers, The implication that teachers are"Clueless",doesn't sit well with me. Ill imply however, its the parents responsibility to parent not society's. Blaming teachers for what children bring to school hasn't worked for the violence happing in schools either..

I find that the words "teacher" and "clueless" always go together.

Students are lucky if the teacher even knows their name after the first semester. Teachers are clueless yet have their hand tied behind their backs because of politically correct parents who wanna point the finger at the system and everyone else before looking at home.

Education is the answer to all these silly questions you continue to ask opinions on... Not regulation & control of society! That does Not work!!!

When I was a freshman in high school, this kid would get high in the back of my math class every day. Smoking straight out of the pipe, and blowing the smoke into his hoodie. I think it's easy to say our math teacher was COMPLETELY clueless, and yes, this really does happen.
