A Navajo school official turned to federal authorities to help curb drug use on campus. Pinon School Superintendent Larry Wallen said less than 5 percent of students being arrested for marijuana use are being prosecuted by the tribe. So, he turned to federal prosecutors, bypassing the tribal court system. On May 27, federal charges were filed against four high school students for marijuana use.
