    Mom told me to stick him an Uber and send him home. Reeking of marijuana. Our term is "he's not in a learning mode."

    Needless to say, he is waiting here in my office.

    Last year was rough. I had a whole bunch of kids taking benzos. I was hoping the new school year would being less, but I think it will be more.

    a snifter or two may make this more palatable. more medications to waste at the end of the year, more to remember and keep track of. Just what i always wanted.

    For far and the kids. Hubs is a teacher and daily he will tell me about the kids in his class openly talking about drinking and smoking weed. Proud of it. These are kids. Ugh, hurts my heart.

    This is why it takes the right kind of heart and nurse to handle those high school kiddos. I have parents come in smelling like cannabis, but I can't even imagine having emergency naloxone or worrying about benzos.

    This is why I would not want to be a HS nurse

    But on the bright side....mine know their names, their meds, why they're taking the meds, and they never throw up on my shoes...

    Ugh. Here we have to also call the police and send the kid for an immediate test. One of the reasons I like elementary, even tho they puke on my shoes.

    Oh my. I will take "puke on my shoes" all day every day over a kid on drugs.
