Puff, puff, cross

Phillyblog comes through again! Today, it seems, the crossguards in Fairmount are toking some herb while on duty...

Pot-smoking Crossing Guard
So...this is kind of weird. I was walking down 18th by Mt. Vernon, across from the school playground and two women were standing on the corner, smoking a joint. One of them was wearing a crossing guard vest and checking for traffic.
For one thing, I thought that school was out, but there were kids at the playground, so maybe they have a summer program. Secondly, I'm all for legalization, but I have a gigantic problem having a hophead in charge of the safety of children crossing the street.
Any suggestions on the proper channels to report this?

So good, I needn't comment.
