On Friday, a Massachusetts father, Benny Garcia, was arrested and charged after his 5-year-old son allegedly took a bag of heroin to his kindergarten class and told his teacher he turns into Spider-Man when he tastes it.
Garica pleaded not guilty to both drug possession and reckless endangerment of a child charges. Who packages heroine into Spiderman bags? You have to wonder if he’s marketing to kids.
The boy showed off a plastic bag stamped with the image of Spider-Man that contained a powdery substance, Hampden County Assistant District Attorney Matthew Green said in court, according to the Daily Hampshire Gazette. The boy told his teacher that he turns into the superhero when he tastes the powder. The boy also allegedly said he got the bag from the living room of his home.
Holyoke police officers were called to the school around 11 a.m. Thursday. The boy was taken to a local hospital and later released. Police contacted the boy’s mother, who gave permission for police to search her apartment. There they found Garcia sleeping on a bed with other bags of white powder underneath him. As he was handcuffed, other bags fell from his body, according to police.
Court documents stated that police found over 200 bags of heroin and cocaine on Garcia. When officers told Garcia about the situation with his son at school, he reportedly became “very emotional.”

The “heroin to Spider-Man” business is small potatoes. The boy turns into Incredible Hulk when Mom adds crack to his apple sauce. That’s just on Fridays, though.
The opioid epidemic doesn’t have a political party. The only people laughing are the pharmaceutical executives. I hope dad gets clean and tries to find another way to earn a living. At some point, it’s time to grow up, but the illegal drug trade keeps many people in the “irresponsibility” mode for far too many years.
