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.

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.
