Winners of the essay contest, Paul Copeland and Erin Welch, each read their
essays to the gathering of family members and teachers.

Welch got a chuckle from the crowd when she proudly states she only plans to
drink alcohol on her wedding day when she is 25 or older.

     CelebStoner's Top 10 Stories of 2008

1. Barack Obama elected President
Without a doubt the biggest story of the year, Obama tantalized stoners with
his quips ("I inhaled frequently") and statements ("we need to rethink and
decriminalize the marijuana laws"). The question remains if and how he will
address the nation's misguided Prohibition of marijuana and other illegal

2. Cheech & Chong reunite
Twenty-seven years after the dopey duo split up, they finally got back
together for the Light Up America comedy tour, which continues through
March. Another Cheech & Chong movie has yet to be announced, but would
appear to be inevitable.

3. Massachusetts decriminalizes marijuana
Question 2 passed with 65% of the vote, making Massachusetts the first state
to liberalize pot laws for recreational use since 1979 - and the 13th state
overall to go decrim.

4. Pineapple Express rakes in $87 million
Seth Rogen and James Franco hit the jackpot with this stoner-action comedy
that had people rolling in the aisles. They also pulled the joint stunt at
the MTV Movie Awards. Bravo! Watch cross-joint scene here

5. Michigan votes for medical marijuana
Voters favored Prop 1 by a 63% margin, making Michigan the 13th state to
legalize pot for patients. Which state will become No. 14?

6. Weeds goes South of the Border
Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louis Parker) blew the whistle on a drug tunnel to
Mexico, jeopardizing her life during Weeds' fourth season on Showtime.
Meanwhile, Nancy's enterprising son Silas (Hunter Parrish) converted his van
into a growroom.

7. New York named "Pot Arrest Capitol of the World"
The Big Apple earned this title when it was revealed that nearly 400,000
people had been busted for marijuana in the city since 1997.

8. Huge 4/20 celebrations in Boulder and Santa Cruz
On the Stoner National Holiday, tens of thousands of students puffed en
masse at 4:20 on Colorado and California campuses, defying school
authorities and local police.

9. Barney Frank's decrim bill
His Personal Use of Marijuana by Responsible Adults Act (H.R. 5843) would
allow adults to possess nearly a quarter pound of weed without facing
criminal penalities. Ask you Representative to please pass this bill right

10. The 2,700-year-old stash
Nearly two pounds of granulated ancient cannabis was found in Northwest
China, where hemp is originally from. It's still not clear if the
researchers inhaled the well-preserved weed.
