Guam - The Department of Education and Guam Customs and Quarantine Agency are continuing their sweeps of schools. The most recent one occurred at Okkodo High School where a marijuana stick was found in student's locker concealed in a pair of pants. DOE Safety Administrator Bruce Williams says recent sweeps have found students in possession of marijuana.
"Look at it this way," William said, "it's better to catch them now and to turn them back in the right direction then to turn them to the courts and let them handle it later. The whole judicial system has to handle them, so it's better to turn them back now, early."
Williams says the goal is to visit three more schools before the year ends.
