KENNEWICK, WA - Horse Heaven Hills Middle School officially lists “drug violation” on a form that will stay in Noah Lockhart's permanent file according to his mother.

When we met with the family they shared their version of the story. They say Noah's aunt gave him two Midol pills for a headache. He went to school and somehow a group of kids found out he had the over the counter drugs with him. They reported him and his mother got a call telling her that Noah was trying to swap drugs at school.

"I was shocked because he had never ever been in trouble at school before," explained his mother Ramona Smith. "The fact that they're taking it this far with a student that's never been in trouble, doesn't have a record, is just ludicrous to me and I don't agree with it."

Noah has been placed on temporary suspension for the next week. He says he never tried to even share the pills with a friend. When his mother asked what evidence the school had that he even tried to share the Midol, they told her it was the word of the other students. Noah is trying to be a young marine like his siblings and is scared this will hurt his chances

"Not only will it go bad on my school and permanent record, it'll go bad on my reputation. That's what I'm worried about. I'm worried about my reputation for the future and what this incident has destroyed," said Noah Lockhart.

NBC Right Now reached out and left messages for the assistant principal that the family says broke the news to them as well as the principal of the school. They have yet to return those calls.

The teen says he is most concerned that the report is not detailed enough and only listing “drug violation” on his form will make him look like a dealer. He says he was just trying to stop a headache. His family explains, now they have an even bigger one.

    KHQ.COM - A new survey found magic mushrooms are the "safest" illegal drug to take.  The Global Drugs Survey 2017 released earlier this week found that only 0.2 percent of those who took magic mushrooms in the last year needed emergency medical treatment, concluding mushrooms to have statistical lower risk of harm compared to other substances.
