A gov’t that can tell you what candy your kid can have, what lightbulbs you have to use, and how much water should be in your toilet is a gov’t that has too much power!!! It’s scary to think how they can exploit that power in the future.

This is ridiculous! An honors student stripped of his titles because he bought skittles?????

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Contraband candy has led to big trouble for an eighth-grade honors student in Connecticut.

Michael Sheridan was stripped of his title as class vice president, barred from attending an honors student dinner and suspended for a day after buying a bag of Skittles from a classmate.

School spokeswoman Catherine Sullivan-DeCarlo says the New Haven school system banned candy sales in 2003 as part of a districtwide school wellness policy.

Michael’s suspension has been reduced from three days to one, but he has not been reinstated as class vice president.

He says he didn’t realize his candy purchase was against the rules, but he did notice the student selling the Skittles on Feb. 26 was being secretive.
