Drug paraphernalia, alcohol found on Madison Academic campus

JACKSON, Tenn– Two Madison Academic High School students are out of class after a startling discovery in a car on campus.

The Madison County Sheriff’s Department confirms two juveniles at the school were charged with unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful possession of alcoholic beverages for minors under 21.
