Students sell banned junk food from their lockers like drugs

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Day Care & Education

Like the high school version of prohibition, students are reacting to junk food bans at their schools by establishing black market operations for trafficking the goods under the administration's radar. Soda? Chips? Chocolate bars? Just when you thought they were gone for good, it turns out kids will go to great lengths to avoid eating healthy in the classroom.

But instead of relying on dark, forgotten corners on campus, guarded by thugs and accessible only by reciting the appropriate password, these students are using the social networking power of Facebook to openly advertise their dubious business endeavors.

I fear the day when school officials will have to start cracking down with Snickers-sniffing dogs.
