Artist Proposes Marijuana for Students
Call it higher education. An Australian artist and university lecturer wants to light up young minds … with pot. Leon Ewing’s proposal, to be shared at an upcoming Tasmanian arts festival, Dark Mofo, suggests that high school students — as part of a museum residency program — be granted access to marijuana-delivering vaporizers. Comparing it to drugs that help kids focus, he said doobies might unleash creativity. Festival organizers expect it to spark outrage, but they’re defending Ewing’s right to roll out big ideas.
