Most drug violations in CPS involve an ounce or less of marijuana. Schools are quick to call police, yet rarely have the resources to offer education, counseling or other non-punitive help to students.

International Gangs In CPS?
According to this (PDF) Congressional report, two predominantly Latino gangs [Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) and the 18th Street gang (M-18)] have spread from LA to the rest of the country and have become international. Are they in Chicago, much less CPS? I have no idea.
