NEWPORT, N.C. — Some parents at a North Carolina middle school are concerned after students were shown a video highlighting Colorado’s marijuana industry.

WCTI reported that a class at Broad Creek Middle School in Newport was recently shown a CNBC documentary titled “Marijuana in America.”

One parent said it showed people using marijuana, rolling and smoking it. The country superintendent reportedly watched the video and said it was not appropriate for students.

The teacher said she showed the video to encourage students to stand up to peer pressure and make good choices.
