Student Arrested For Giving Marijuana Essay (While Smoking a Joint)

2298921212_001c4da0ddA student at Peninsula High School in Purdy Washington was arrested after he sparked up and smoked a joint while giving a pro-marijuana presentation in the school auditorium.  He then finished his essay, sat down, finished smoking the joint and then ate the roach. A teacher contacted the school resource officer, a Pierce County sheriff’s deputy, who found a small residual amount of marijuana on the student and arrested him for possession of marijuana.

The student, a 17-year-old junior with a 3.7 grade-point average, had asked teachers to let him finish his speech and then he would take responsibility for his actions according to fellow classmates. He used smoking the joint durring the essay as an example of marijuana not affecting your brain.

    It affects your brain by safely supplementing the endogenous cannabinoid system receptors synchronizing that organ with the rest of the organism. However, he may have meant CB supplementation does not slow thinking processes down, rather it allows function prioritization to expand to higher functions, such as creative problem solving. Reaction times have been shown to be faster for subjects regularly supplementing depleted CB systems. I’d like to see a copy of his speech — is it published any where? His arrest is an act of medical barbarism, corporate disinformation, and legal arbitrariness. Stop the lies. Legalize.

    I second that motion. I am also proud that he is a Washintonian. I hope this ends up getting more mainstream media attention, particularly the reasoning behind his actions and the content of his presentation which I REALLY want to see.

    He is a smart student, he must have known it was now or never because he’s 17 yrs old. He won’t get too bad of consequences cuz he’s underage. Smart move, perfect timing, and now I hope many underagers do the same. Let’s legalize!

    I wish more people had the balls to come out of the closet smoking. I want as many people to show the U.S. Government just how many of us do smoke. Stop being in the dark.
