An eighth-grade honors student in New Haven, Conn. had his reputation restored and his record cleared after suffering drastic discipline for involvement in an underground candy cartel. After the student was caught in the act of purchasing a bag of skittles from a peddling classmate (the New Haven school system banned candy sales in 2003 in an effort to boost campus "wellness"), both students were suspended and the honors student was stripped of his post as class vice president.
