A Portland High School will be talking pot tonight, and that's got some parents angry. On Wednesday, a News 13 viewer came to our studios with a flyer she said a group of students have been handing out at Deering High School; her son got one of them. The flyer is encouraging students to come to Deering Auditorium Thursday night for a showing of "Grass, The Movie," with the question: "Do You Want Marijuana To Be Legal?"
The evening is being put on by a school-sponsored group called the Student Revolutionary Assembly.
The principal at Deering High School tried to stop the event, but the superintendent gave it the final go ahead.
The superintendent says she called the school's attorneys and learned the students legally can talk about the drug, even at the school.
Some parents think the event is sending the wrong message, and want the whole thing canceled.
The superintendent says because the students should be discussing both sides of the issue, the meeting is not considered promoting the use of the drug.
The event is scheduled for 7pm.
this is swim's state and he is glad this is happening. Hopefully it will continue and maybe even bring about change
