Police: Georgia girl, 5, takes marijuana on school bus

NORCROSS, Ga. — Police say a 5-year-old girl took a bag of marijuana on a bus bound for her school, La Petite Academy, in suburban Atlanta.

Gwinnett County police say the girl had the drugs in a book bag when the bus driver noticed a “funny” smell on her clothing.

Authorities say when the bus driver told the girl she smelled funny, she pulled a bag of marijuana from her book bag. Police said in a report the child told the bus driver that “her mommy put it in there.” Authorities said the bag contained 10 smaller baggies of marijuana totaling 19 grams.

Police said the child’s mother was arrested on drug charges after investigators searched a Duluth apartment Wednesday. The mother could not be reached Thursday, and it wasn’t known whether she has an attorney.
