I got suspended for having mouthwash. There was nothing in the student handbook about having mouthwash or other hygiene items, I never thought twice about bringing it, since I had a mouth infection. My doctor told me to swish with mouthwash hourly, to keep it clean before my appointment, which was later that day, after school let out. I used the nasty amber colored Listerine, because the mint made it burn too badly, and another student told a teacher that they smelled booze on my breath. I was searched, they found the mouthwash in my bag, they smelled it, decided I MUST be concealing liquor, and suspended me for the rest of the day and the next day. I went back the next day with my mom and a letter from my doctor stating that she had told me to use mouthwash hourly, and my mom pitched a huge fit until they let me come back.
That suspension still stayed on my record though, which was total bullshit.
