Additional Guidelines

Districts must also report the Drug-Related Element, and the Drug Description (PDF, 29KB) for all drug sale/distribution incidents. Complete the Drug Description using (M) - Marijuana, (N) - Not a controlled substance, (O) - Other illicit drugs, or (Z) - Not applicable. If the incident involves both (M) and (O), select the description that represents the most serious offense.

Note: Drug Sale/Distribution incidents must also be reported in the related element "Drug-Related"


Should the sale of fake drugs, such as a student representing oregano to be marijuana, be coded as a SESIR Drug Sale/Distribution incident?

  • Yes, even though the substance being sold is not a controlled substance, it is being represented as a drug and under the SESIR definition of Drug Sale/Distribution; it should be reported as the SESIR incident DRD.
