On arrival, the officer spoke to a Boston Public Schools safety officer who said that a small bag of the substance had been recovered from the student at about 9:30 a.m., during an administrative search.
Police issued the student a civil citation for marijuana possession, at which time she said, “No one listens to me. This system is all messed up. You’re reading from a script.”
School staff told the officer that the student exhibits bi-polar behavior and has refused medication, and that she appeared to be under the influence of marijuana.
The school nurse evaluated the student, who remained in the custody of school staff until her guardian arrived to pick her up.
Police seized the marijuana as evidence.
