Dozens of high school students in the Jerusalem area used WhatsApp to buy drugs using the code word "eggplants" and "movies."
So far, police has questioned dozens of students, and granted them conditional release. Some of them admitted to using drugs in recent months at class trips, parties and social events.
The investigation started a month ago following intelligence that the school's students were buying drugs through a WhatsApp group opened by the three teens, who are suspected of dealing and providing drugs. Several dozens students were members of the group.
Police suspects that the group's admin would tell group members that he was going to get "movies" or "eggplants" soon. The students would then arrive at his home or meet with him at social events to purchase the drugs from somewhere between NIS 50-150.
