Actually in most school's now (at least where I live) you have to leave med's with the office and go to the office to take them...so yes it's in school policy that you can't have drugs of any kind (yes even plain Advil) on your person. And so therefore the school would have the right to search the girl for the drugs. Also someone above mentioned that it's not like the girl could of killed anyone with a prescription, but what if it had been something the other kind was allergic to?....what do you do when the kid she gave the drugs to has a reaction and stops breathing? Anyways that's just my thoughts on the topic....I think the girl was stupid for giving med's of any kind to other kids in school...and she must not of known the other kid very well if the kid told on her.
Well you have a point there but were their suspicions based strongly enough to resort to such a method??? They stripped her before her parents or the police could give approval...
