I have to agree with Rob Morley. Have a BOR with the scout. Discuss what
you've been told. Don't name names. Then ask him for his story. The
question should be not intimidating,but polite. Give the scout the benifit
of the doubt. I wouldn't ask him point blank about smoking pot, but leave
the scout an out to save face. I know scouts should not be involved with
drugs (neither should anyone) but, sometimes people fall down, you may be
his only hope to get up and back on the path and be a better person and
scout for it.
Everybody is innocent before being proved guilty. Even if he is guilty,
you are a better person to make him a better person.

Looking for some input from Scouters who have experianced Scouts using
drugs, ie Pot.
Here's the situation:
Got a phone call tonight from a very experianced assistant Scoutmaster
who is registered with my unit and another speicality unit in the
One of the Scouts that is in this speciality unit (explorer post) and
the troop has been seen smoking pot by some very creditable witnessess
spoking pot on outings with there unit but not in my troop.
My feeling and thoughts are:
- to have a Scoutmaster conferance with the youth and his parent.
- as Scoutmaster this will influance me on signing off Scout Spirit.
Any other comments from the group??
