Riding high on the metro

Now, I don’t like to judge but I was going to the metro the other day when an unmistakable smell hit me in the face. It was the smell of a Grateful Dead concert, or a Phish show, and instantly associated with Bob Marley. The fact is some kids love getting high outside the Petworth metro station. Now, I wouldn’t write about it if I haven’t witnessed it on more than one occasion. I like to think that I am not too naive. Now, if it was Friday night or Saturday night I wouldn’t think twice about it but when it is Tuesday morning at 8 am and sub freezing weather, it makes me think our youth may have a problem. And they most certainly were young kids. I hope the candidates for Ward 4 address this issue. Am I just totally out of it or is this normal behavior for high school or maybe even junior high kids?
