How his folks usually appeared to be for Harry after he came home from his “hanging-out” sessions in the projects.

Harry’s favorite vendor at High School.Now we all know why Harry took High School very seriously, for reasons obviously misinterpreted, eg.”HIGH” School. I heard Pete Doherty,Kate Moss and Jack Black are all alumni of the same school.

A matured Harry, uh,well…. not really. Well this is the last seen of Harry and it seems he hasn’t lost his creative sense of imagination under influence.

For those who arent really convinced read on, and for those who would like to move on, uninspired by Harry, just click on his Pothead.

Tacoma,WA- At the end of his speech Tuesday urging legalization of marijuana, a 17-year-old Peninsula High School student pulled out a joint, lit it and smoked away. Then he ate the remains.

For that he got a quick escort to the school office and then a ride to Remann Hall juvenile jail.

The stunt was frowned on, to say the least, by law-enforcement officers and district administrators.”

We don’t know his name, mainly because the school doesn’t want to attract any unnecessary attention. The student presented an argument urging the legalization of pot, and to be even more persuasive and i guess to prove a point, he smoked. In front of people. It takes a very smart person, or a very stupid person to come to that conclusion.

While I believe that such a tactic is rather… immature, he does prove a point. In American society there is something called the Cannabis Closet, where it’s extremely taboo if you smoke pot, like it, and hold a responsible job and life. This 17 yr old is passionate, and I really commend him for having such a strong drive, but would that have the same effect if it were a 30 year old? At a stock broker job? As a doctor?

17 year olds are meant to be stupid. It’s why we tend to blow them off when they do stuff like this. But what if it were a Mayor of a city, handing out Joints on the steps of city hall?

That’s what happened in 2002.

“Openly defying the federal government, a host of Santa Cruz officials stood witness Tuesday as medical marijuana advocates distributed cannabis products in the courtyard of Santa Cruz City Hall.
As street musicians performed in the background and an unmarked green helicopter hovered persistently overhead, the mayor and five of six City Council members, three former mayors and the city’s representative on the county Board of Supervisors joined with an estimated 1,000 citizens to show support for medical pot.” – SF Chronicle

So before you blow off this as some teenage stunt, consider the facts. A student, smoked pot in front of a classroom of students, ate the joint. This was met with surprise and applause. He was then transported to the principal’s office, then was arrested by two Officers, who took him to Juvie.

So, for about $10 worth of pot, the city of Tacoma spent unknown amounts of money sending cops out, arresting him, driving him to Juvie, and then booking him. With no evidence of illegal possession. If they choose to pursue it, it would be taken to court (pot on campus is a big no-no), thus spending even more time, and money, to prosecute a kid, who by the way, ATE the joint. He didn’t even get high.

As for the Cannabis Closet, I feel like if there is a place to start, it’s now. I am following in Will Wilkinson, a research fellow at the Cato Institute‘s footsteps: My name is Yilen Pan, I smoke pot, and I like it.
