The Smoke Shop Protest!
    #11247810 - 10/14/09 08:11 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)



The Smoke Shop Protest

In 2001 it came to the attention of the Dover Police Department that a local smoke shop was selling bongs, which were considered to be illegal drug paraphernalia because they are primarily used to smoke illegal drugs, such as marijuana.  The Police Department executed a search warrant and seized thousands of dollars worth of bongs, which the owner claimed (in a local news article) were used for smoking tobacco.

Students in Dover Youth to Youth thought the store owner's claim was ridiculous and they decided that they should do something about this.  The students decided to hold a demonstration to draw the community's attention to the drug paraphernalia issue. Students from Y2Y's Saint Mary Academy Team decided to hold an informational demonstration in front of the store.

The first step was to train the students on the legal way to do that.  They went as a group to Dover City Hall and applied for a permit. Members of the Police Department informed them on what they could and could not do under the permit. 

The students came up with a theme for the protest that they called:  "The World's Most Ridiculous Claims", such as: "The World is Flat", "The check is in the mail", "My dog ate my homework" and "Elvis is alive".  They then took large posters and made signs with these ridiculous claims on them.  Next the students were granted their permit from the City of Dover.  On November 9th, 2001, the students headed out to downtown Dover to hold their demonstration.  The students lined up in groups along the road leading up to the Smoke Shop. Each group held up one of the signs they had created with the "The World's Most Ridiculous Claims" for passing cars and pedestrians to see.  The last group of students stood in front of the smoke shop holding the final sign which read "Bongs Are Used For Tobacco... Ya Right!"

During the protest people drove by, honked and waved from their cars to show their support for the students.  However, not everyone was happy about what was going on.  The owner of the smoke shop came out of her store and started shouting and swearing at the Y2Y students ("Get the ______ off my property") and blowing smoke in their faces.  She became so angry with the demonstration that she grabbed one of the signs being held by two of the students and she threw it across the parking lot. 

By interfering with the protest and the student's lawful right to assemble, the store owner was in violation of the students' right to free speech and NH state law.  The Dover Police Department subsequently charged her with disorderly conduct.  She pled not guilty and we made the court hearing a Youth to Youth field trip.  Two students testified against her in Court.  She was found guilty and was fined $250.

haha, a bro and i did that at an abortion rally in our small town once.  We both worked at an office supply store, and int he way in, there were people holding signs of illegally aborted fetuses, signs with slogans, 'abortion is murder', 'how could you kill a baby', etc.

Well, tehre was this one sign, that read, 'Abortion kills little babies', so we made a large sign out of 4 pieces of poster board, and wrote, 'And we Eat them' on it.  So we went and stood right next to the guy holding the other sign...it was classic.  He kept moving for a while, then finally, they all just left...

peace

'abortion is murder' = most failed protest ever. they have yet 2 prove abortion is murder and when exactly a human life starts. for if abortion is murder than it would already be illegal.

Alcohol is safe, unlike Marihuana which can cause instant death.

They should arrest people for selling bong making materials like 2 liter bottles, tape, and tinfoil. Also the air they use to inhale should be taxed.
