NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A mix of sugar and Kool-Aid known as “happy crack” has landed some young Dorchester County students in trouble.

The Post and Courier (https://bit.ly/2eqRTLv) reports that nine students at North Charleston’s Eagle Nest Elementary School were suspended after they were caught with the saccharine powder last week.

Officials say possession of any substance, whether illegal or not, that looks like an illegal substance is a violation of a school policy.

All of the students were facing expulsion, but the offenses have been reduced to suspensions.

Parents of the suspended children told WCIV-TV (https://bit.ly/2ehfcUA ) they had no idea of the policy in the district’s handbook and neither did their children.

District spokeswoman Pat Raynor says privacy laws prevented her from saying whether the students were eating, selling or distributing the substance.
