Agreed that parents and the school should take responsibility, Evie. But WHICH drug they end up bringing to school to be bigshots or to "share," kind of depends on how attractove it is to the kid who decides to violate all school rules and bring it. It is already totally against the school rules, to the point of absurdity out here, to where kids can't even take ANY medicine to school at all.
Try having a kid recovering from bronchitis or even just flu, and having a terrible cough when they can't have cough drops under penalty of suspension or expulsion! Yes, we can get a doctor's note, but you don't want to do that each time the kid has a slight relapse and starts coughing again. Besides, they have to have the prescription then, at the office, which is insane if we're only talking cough drops.
For girls, it's a really bad siutation, since they would like to be able to take Midol or something similar in private without having to explain to the teacher in front of the class to get permission to go to the office, to have it administered after the parents have to get a prescription for an OTC medicine to begin with!
Kids share. That's just the way of it. Some bring in their drug dealing parent's stash of dope. Not good, obviously. Many don't even know what it is, but know it's important, and hope it makes them look cool. In second grade, one enterprising young man brought in his dad's stash of condoms. I darned near crashed my car that year, having to answer an unexpected question of," What's a condom, Mom?"
Again, it's the show-and-tell spirit in action. But if it doesn't taste good, they are less likely to use it. Another case we had in a school a few cities away, some dopers had been making a PCP lab on a secluded site. They split, leaving the ground littered with the various stages of chemicals still on the ground. And very pretty those chemcials made the dirt too! Yellow and purple. The kid that brought it to school shared with classmates, who all got sick and were hospitalized. Again, it was attractive. You have the theory of "attractive nuisance' with pools and empty freezers, and other things attractive to kids. The same holds true for making a medicine that is more attractive and thus more likely to look like something to sneak for a private little show-and-tell among friends.
And even good parents, at a good, responsible school, can't predict all of these scenarios. It may still happen, but the drug manufacturers shouldn't make it more likely to happen by the way they market the drugs. As DK says, that drug has lots of potential problems associated with it anyway.
