Student’s “hit” during marijuana speech – no hit with police
A student in Purdy, Washington presented an essay on the legalization of marijuana Tuesday morning in the high school’s assembly hall before an estimated 120-150 people. At the end of his presentation, the student took out a joint, lit it and began to smoke it. The student then sat down, finished smoking the joint and ate the remnants. [Photo by Meepocity (Flickr)]
Although some students admired the presenter’s boldness and standing up for what he believed in, the school officials contacted the school resources officer and immediately escorted the student to the office. The officer found a small residual amount of marijuana on the student. The 17 year old junior with a 3.7 GPA was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana and transported to a juvenile facility.
