Police haul 2-pound marijuana joint off University of California campus along with one student's dream

We've finally discerned what a college education is good for: constructing joints that might actually kill you. A University of California student put his engineering degree - or art history degree depending on how you want to look at it - to work this last 4/20 by rolling a two-pound, four-foot marijuana joint that he unveiled at the campus smokeout. And just as quickly as he pulled it out, the cops took it away.

But that's cool, the joint couldn't have cost too much with dispensaries offering such great discounts. No, the joint is estimated to have had $5,000 to $6,000 worth of marijuana. Ouch. The student didn't back down, following the police and threatening a lawsuit of harassment. Good luck with that one. 

On another note: the UC Santa Cruz police department has yet to comment on the situation; or respond to calls; or talk with reporters; or open the station blinds; or stop ordering delivery pizzas. OK, they're high.
