Student discouraged from smudging before school

Stephen Bunn, 17, and his sister smudge before school everyday, he says it helps cleanse his body and makes him think better. Bunn is in grad 11 at Crocus Plains Regional Secondary School in Brandon, Manitoba. In November 2012 he was stopped by several teachers claiming to have smelled weed on him. He was eventually discouraged from smudging before school and if he was going to smudge before school he was to get his mother to excuse him from classes. He discontinued smudging because he began to feel ashamed and embarrassed. Bunn started smudging again this week and has not recieved any complaints.

Below is a video of Bunn explaining the incident and his views in his own words.
