Ian Barry - Cannabis Crusader or naughty boy?

I reckon he deserves a pat on the back for being brave and standing up for what he believes. I bet he didn't think he'd be world famous by the end of the week though.

G'day from Australia Ian!

If you don't know who or what I'm talking about, Ian presented a speech at his school last week about legalising cannabis. Half way through his speech he lit a joint and smoked it. If not for that small joint, none of would have heard of him. I should have done that when I presented my cannabis speech at Uni a few years ago. Bugger!

Heres a few links to articles about the incident, and Ians speech:
