Kids are getting drunk on vanilla extract and coffee, school warns

Students have been showing up at school drunk — and they haven’t even needed someone over 21 to buy alcohol for them.

Officials at Grady High School in Atlanta have issued a warning to schools all over the U.S. after they discovered a number of their students have been getting wasted on bourbon vanilla extract, according to abc7.

They say students have been buying the baking ingredient from a nearby Trader Joe’s, then mixing it in with Starbucks coffee so they can catch a buzz on their way to school.

In one case, a student had to be hospitalized after getting drunk, school officials say.
