CLEVELAND– Cleveland police say they are investigating an incident at a Cleveland public charter school where a 5-year-old student accidentally brought a bag of marijuana to school.

The principal at Citizens Academy called police on Feb. 14 to report a bag of marijuana was found in a 5-year-old’s school bag.

When the child was asked about it, he stated, it was, “His dad’s weed that he smokes.”

The father of the child was called to the school and admitted it was his marijuana and his bag that the child was using.

No word on whether charges will be filed.
