Teenagers are at the age where they’re beginning to make their own choices, based on their own value systems, and not based on whatever their parents believe, or what bureaucratic teachers tell them to believe.
Skipping school to smoke pot is an honourable tradition that has been going on for decades.
As a teenager growing up in Ontario, I would have loved to celebrate 4/20 in Vancouver.
I hope Vancouver students realize how lucky they are to live in such a beautiful place, the epicentre of Canada’s cannabis community.
And I hope they take the rules issued by their authorities with a grain of salt.
4/20 in Vancouver is an annual tradition worth booking time off work, and it’s definitely worth skipping school over.
If only the Vancouver School Board would chill out, hit a dab, and join in on the festivities.
