Before today I had never heard of Otago University in New Zealand but now I may end up sending my (future) kids there. The University student association attempted to overturn a rule allowing students to smoke marijuana on campus, fortunately they failed.
In 2006 the Association passed a motion declared the grounds a cannabis prohibition-free zone.
Association president Harriet Geoghegan today attempted to rescind that, in favour of stating the Association does not condone any actions the breach New Zealand law.
The motion was voted down, following lengthy discussion at the Student’s General Meeting.
Talk about higher education. Schools in the United States could learn a thing or two from schools like this.
