“(I’m) shocked. To be in third grade and have their own pipe,” parent Linda Rodriguez commented to KTXL-TV. “I think they should be expelled, but I also think they should follow it further to where they found (the drugs).”MORE NEWS: VIDEO: Smash-and-Grab Suspects Arrested In Brazen Serramonte Center Jewelry Store Robbery
