Eight scouts sent home from Scotland Jamboree

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

"One 16-year-old Scottish boy has been charged with supplying controlled drugs and a 17-year-old from the United States has been charged with possession of drugs, understood to be cannabis.

Police were called to the event in the grounds of the picturesque Blair Castle at Blair Atholl, Perthshire, on Thursday.

Last night a spokesman for Police Scotland said: 'After enquiries were conducted, a 17-year-old male was charged and given a Recorded Police Warning for possession of controlled drugs, and a 16-year-old male was charged and is to be reported for supplying controlled drugs.'

The teenagers were sent home from the camp along with six other scouts.

...

A spokesman for the organisation said: 'Scouts Scotland has a zero tolerance policy on narcotics use and this matter has been reported to Police Scotland.'"

Put enough teenagers in one place and I guess this kind of thing happens. Real pity it had to end up in the national press rather than just being dealt with internally.

I wonder if the 17yr American, upon his return to our shores, will have a separate meeting with US Custom Officers etc, while his parents and SM wait their turn.

I can't rule anything out at the Constitution-free zone that is our modern border, but this shouldn't be any different than someone who smokes dope in Amsterdam, has a beer at Oktoberfest, or eats some raw milk cheese in France. Besides taxation the US doesn't typically try to enforce laws outside their jurisdiction for US citizens.

They say misery loves company, but I'm not feeling it.

I'd be perfectly fine if the canabis dependence epidemic only ravaged my school district.

This is just so disappointing. I realize that 8 out of 1,000 or more boys is a small number but that's about 7 more than I thought would show such a lack of integrity. I looked the subject up on YouTube to see if there was any news reports broad cast on it. The search field had 8 scouts caught with pot in Scotland. Nothing to be seen. FYI, Pot and Girl Scout cookies are evidently a thing. A big thing. Who knew? Sounds like an easy joke to make at the GS expense but that's fair disappointment to me as well.

Apparently, there have been some Girl Scouts who have decided to sell Girl Scout cookies in front of pot shops.  I guess their idea is to capitalize on users and the "munchies".

Capitalizing on indulgence? How strange.

LOL, and to think they are upset with the BSA for stealing "their" Girls.
