If We Legalize Weed In America, We'll Have To Deal With A Lot More Of These People

Marijuana might make someone great at building model airplanes, and it has a lot of life-saving medicinal benefits, but driving a car while high is a different story. Marijuana is absolutely a safer alternative to alcohol health-wise, but that doesn't make it acceptable (or legal) for users to drive while intoxicated. In New Zealand, officials don't want to see a cavalier attitude about recreational marijuana lead to intoxicated driving and crashes or arrests.

Why should a superintendent get a raise while teachers in the same district struggling to make ends meet see their paychecks flatline — year after year after year?

Teacher Deyshia Hargrave begged the question. Minutes later, she was handcuffed and placed in the backseat of a cop car.

The scene was captured below by YouTube user Chris Rosa, who attended a board meeting for Vermilion Parish Schools in Louisiana.

You can watch Hargrave begin speaking about 33 seconds in. The situation starts becoming contentious around 6:35 minutes. Hargrave is arrested at 8:35, and then walked outside in handcuffs and placed in the back of police vehicle. (Story continues below.)

"We're meeting those goals, while someone in that position of leadership [the superintendent] is getting raise? It's a sad, sad day to be a teacher in Vermilion Parish."
