The story says "in possession of weed". WEED? A little too informal for the Maven's taste. Why not call it Pot, Reefer, Grass, Dope, Ganja, Mary Jane, Hash, Herb, Aunt Mary, Skunk, Boom,Chronic, Cheeba, Blunt, Ashes, Atshitshi, Baby Bhang, Bammy ,Blanket ,Bo-Bo, Bobo Bush, Bomber, Boom, Broccoli, Cripple, Dagga, Dinkie Dow, Ding, Dona Juana (or Juanita), Flower, Flower Tops, Ganja, Gasper, Giggle Smoke, Good Giggles, Good Butt, Hot Stick, Jay, Jolly Green, Joy Smoke, Joy Stick, Roach, Bud? The Indiana statute does not call the substance "weed" and the Maven highly doubts the criminal charges will call it weed.
Then the 17-year-old is referred to as "HER" student? She's not a teacher, she's a guidance counselor, so how can he be called "her" student? Substitute "a" for "her" and the Maven has no gripe.
It seems that local media can't find the logical middle ground of putting the facts into a news story. At one end of the spectrum readers/listeners/viewers are bludgeoned with 'cop speak' taken directly from police reports, OR, we get inaccurate information using the trendy vocabulary of the day. Of course, they could all be smokin' dope and don't give a rat's ass.
