Only in a system of wildly unequal resources and opportunities would this kind of competition be set up for admission to kindergarten.

The goal: control the marijuana trade at local high schools and colleges in the picturesque, wealthy corridor of towns known as the Main Line.

They enlisted local students to act as dealers, pushing them to sell at least one pound of marijuana a week, prosecutors said. During an investigation into the operation this year, detectives seized marijuana, cocaine, Ecstasy and several weapons, including a loaded assault rifle and a semiautomatic pistol, according to the Montgomery County district attorney’s office."

Basically, in a more unequal society, there’s less caring and sharing, and that’s what really matters for your health."
