Where else but British Columbia? Three students were reportedly told to remove or cover up the anti-marijuana t-shirts they'd worn to school on Monday.
According to the Province, Connor Fesenmaier, 18, his twin brother Duncan and a friend -- all students at Princess Margaret Secondary School in Surrey -- "wore shirts featuring a crossed-out marijuana leaf to promote their opposition to the legalization and overall use of pot. The teens are involved in Smart Approaches to Marijuana Canada, a non-profit group focused on the science of marijuana use."
Each was told by the vice-principal to "consider removing or covering up the shirts because the message could be confusing to the younger students."
Fesenmaier told the Province that “I have not had a single person misinterpret it yet. Either someone is giving me a hate stare, because they are against me supporting [the anti-legalization movement] or they pat me on the back. I’ve never seen anyone not know that the anti-symbol is.”
After the three declined to remove or cover up the shirts, they were allowed to return to classes unpunished.
“I see kids walking around the school with marijuana paraphernalia,” Fesenmaier told the Province.
“Shirts with marijuana leaves on them, backpacks with marijuana leaves on them, cellphone cases with marijuana leaves on them.
“And I’ve never seen those kids have their items confiscated or asked to remove or replace them with something else.”
