    Valdosta High School is about a mile from this high crime area. This school year the school determined it necessary to use drug dogs to sniff out drugs on school property. School is nearly over and we have not seen one article in the paper or heard NEWS about the drug dogs findings and subsequent action taken. A drug dog can find an onion with a spec of pot in the center of it that’s concealed in a pile of onions. The public knows that a dog will scent pot in our schools because pot is so prevalent in Valdosta. The reason for the dog. The dog should have smelled a lot of pot at the school. Justifying a search warrant for resident of the student or adult school employee. DON’T HIDE IT! PROVIDE IT!
