Seventh-grader Adam Grass and three other students at Hickory Middle School in Chesapeake, Va., were suspended last week after being caught with what teachers initially thought was a bag of oregano, a bag of spice that teachers believed was a stash of marijuana.

Adam, a straight-A student and National Junior Honor Society candidate, is now facing expulsion. According to school board member Christie Craig, Virginia has a zero-tolerance policy against “imitation controlled substances.”
