LOWER BURRELL, Pa. —
Jolt chewing gum has caffeine and ginseng.
The Lower Burrell school superintendent said consuming and passing out the gum violates the school's drug awareness policy. That's because caffeine is considered a stimulant.
Parents told Channel 11 they did not understand the suspension.
Resident Elizabeth Grombacher said, "I think it's stupid. Everything's getting too politically correct it's so wrong."
"It's probably just like Mountain Dew or something like that. If it's got a lot of caffeine in it and they probably sell the pop at school,” parent Nita Serene said.
Jolt chewing gum is sold over the counter at drug stores and vitamin distributors.
