The Ministry of Education is urging schools to crack down on the use of ganja by students.

Education Minister Ronald Thwaites says he has received startling accounts of students smoking ganja.

He says two students had to be taken to the hospital due to symptoms of psychosis.

The Minister says although the government will be taking steps to properly educate the public, schools need to take the initiative and properly enforce codes of conduct.

He’s reminding the public, especially children, that smoking is hazardous to their health and that despite the changes to the ganja law, the weed will never be allowed in school.
