  1. im a bit confused on whats going on here?… Someone pls explain if you know anything more about this?

    • I was there what happened is this guy wants to make marijuana legal for medical, and religious purposes. The other man running against him kept using the term marijuana instead of cannabis and he got really offended saying “it was a racist term just like saying the word (n word)” after his opposer said the word a couple more times he stormed off the stage saying he was done. If you don’t believe me I have a voice recording and you can heard what is happening. It’s not fake. Also this comment was not to offend anyone at all.

    • I was there in the audience when it happened. I can explain. Alan Gordon (the guy who went crazy), he finds the word marijuana extremely offensive because it’s rooted in racial stereotypes. Don’t ask. Gordon was promised before the event Peter Neronha (the other guy at the podium) would not say “marijuana” — and when he said it the second time it set Gordon off. Me and my friends were so shocked when it happened.

    • Badass Mother I was there and yes, he is running for attorney general and yes he spelt out the N word. And yes they don’t have their story right

    • the audience are cheering because they’re teenage americunt goon pavlovian chimps who cheer when anyone says mari juana

  2. The only thing I understood besides the clapping and cheering, “I’m done!” 😂🤷🏽‍♀️

    • Ok as someone who was at the school while this happened, he basically was talking about how he’s done here because the other candidate said “marijuana” instead of cannibas which to him is offensive apparently or whatever. It’s kind of confusing but I’m actuslly In the video lmao. My friend Elliot and zack recorded these videos. You don’t have to believe me but it’s true

  3. TMZ, you all kinda fumbled this one. No one can tell what’s going on, and then in the description you mention something about marijuana??? WTF?

    • @SuperJackster01: thanks for the explanation. What in the world does the N-Word have to do with this?

  4. The title and video dont match. He spelled it out. He never said it or, “blasts out” with it. The description doesn’t even talk about that. Stop drinking while working TMZ.

    • Nerd For Hire no actually he wasn’t 😂 this video was taken from my friends, they have iPhones it’s just that the video has been sent to multiple kids who went to the school and one of them sent it as an email to TMZ which loses the quality and stuff

  5. As a student from the school let me explain what happened

    The man was talking about weed and was talking about how it was offensive to his culture how the other candidates called it marijuana and not canibis, he decided to literally throw a temper tantrum and then what happened in the video happened and he left, hopefully this cleared up some confusion for the description

  6. This will be my school next year. I’m currently in 8th grade in the district. (I also recognize the building from concerts I’ve been in)
