There was an unusual scene Monday night at the State Capitol as a picture of a marijuana leaf was projected onto the building.

News 9 got several calls about this into our newsroom from people who couldn't believe what they were seeing. The marijuana leaf was being projected by Attorney Chad Moody with "TheDrugLawyer.com." It turns out Monday night's event was a publicity stunt.

Moody is upset with the state's stand on the legalization of marijuana. He also said he wishes he had been arrested when Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers showed up.

"I'd like to have this argument in court. I think that Oklahoma jurors are sensible enough at this point that they will repudiate a false and absurd policy like marijuana prohibition,” Moody said.

Moody was not arrested, and eventually left the capitol grounds.
