Michelle Whitmire Accused Of Distributing Pot To High School Students

A cafeteria worker at a Jefferson County high school has been arrested and charged with distributing marijuana and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

According to KDVR, Michelle Whitmire, the cafeteria manager at Jefferson High School, was arrested on Thursday, several days after investigators visiting her home in Golden smelled pot and found several teenagers.

According to the Denver Post, the teenagers told investigators that Whitmire had a medical marijuana card, and gave pot to neighborhood kids.

The arrest comes a week after Colorado Attorney General John Suthers argued that the arrest of an illegal pot operation that was using medical marijuana as a cover was an example of "a nexus between Colorado's booming medical marijuana industry and illegal distribution of the drug."

Whitmire posted $10,000 bond the same day she was arrested.
