A 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.
