This is no one's business but theirs as far as I am concerned.
Both are over 18 and pot should be legal.
Unless it can be proven she blackmailed the guy to fool around with her - then I don't really care what they did together and I think the matter should be dropped (but I realize most people are too uptight for that - and I do not care that marijuana is illegal).

I really think it a shame that people take these things lightly and even joke about it. Just imagine making some of these same comments if the priciple happen to be male and the student, female. You would certainly be called all types of names as well as risk your reputation if anyone could ever identify you. Yet when these incidents occur and the roles are reversed, its fair game for all kinds of sexist remarks.
This teacher should have been fired immediately. There is no good reason she could possibly come up with that would explain away her being in the backseat of a vehicle, nearly half naked, with drugs and a student. If this were a male principle, there would be protests outside the school to fire the principle and probably national coverage. Instead, we see a news article published in a local source which probably gets very limited exposure.
Figures. Its these types of things that cement the idea in my head that when feminists want equality, they only want equality when it favors them. Us men can have our male entitlement everywhere else where it is undesirable to have it.

- Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
- Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
Two seperate issues are being conflated here.
One is whether the principal in question engaged in professional misconduct. If she did indeed engage in inappropriate behavior with a student then I would say yes. Such professional misconduct could indeed rightly get her fired from her job. But that is not a criminal matter.
The second issue is one of criminal law. Did she engage in criminal activity. If the student was an adult then having any form of sexual contact with him if it was consensual was not a crime. However there might be possible charges of public indecency and possession of controlled substances. That's for the investigation to reveal.
She did 2 things wrong....possessed pot (which should be legal), and got caught in a position she shouldn't have been in (principal with student). Legally they shouldn't be able to charge her for the sex act considering he's 18, but she needs to be removed from her job nonetheless.
