Mr. Ellison was a respected member of the faculty, and one of my favorite instructors when I attended El Doraro; People make bad decisions, accept who he is and the choices he's made, we all have our demons. They all catch up with us eventually.

Bro You just f$&@ your life for the love of easy money.

There is nothing easy for the victims, when you peddle poison, which is what marijuana is. Even if it were legalized it would only lead to the use and abuse of more dangerous drugs. Marijuana is a gateway drug. This guy made his choice to peddle drugs. The amount that was found in his car is an amount that only a pusher would have. I hope the school district wises up and fires this pusher so he can no longer get a job with any other school. This is nothing to joke about.

Fire the guy imediately!!! This person should be used as an example of what happens to adults in the "real worl" if they consume and or distribute drugs. Any other punishment would only encourage this behavior.
