From Russell Barth's Facebook via www.KIROTV.com comes this gem out of the Pacific Northwest.
A student presenting an essay supporting legalization of the evil weed Tuesday morning took out a marijuana joint, lit it, and began smoking it, police said.
For starters, smoking in class, dumb. Secondly, waking and baking, dumb squared.
This happened in Purdy, Washington and according to Pierce County sheriff's detective Ed Troyer, the student smoked the joint during his essay supporting the legalization of marijuana.
He then finished his essay, sat down, finished smoking the joint and then ate the end [my friends tell me it is called a "roach"] after it was fully smoked.
He just didn't eat all of the reefer's remains and after the teacher of the class contacted the school resources officer, a Pierce County sheriff's deputy, the deputy found a small residual amount of marijuana on the student.
The student, a 17-year-old junior with a 3.7 grade-point average, [presumably out of 100],was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana by Pierce County deputies and booked into Remann Hall in Tacoma.
