A student is all fired up over the loss of his prized project -- a two-pound joint unveiled at a University of California -- Santa Cruz campus party.

The event was among scores of events on Friday, marking '4-20' -- an increasingly popular celebration of pot-smoking culture that takes place, naturally, on April 20. How the event came by its name, however, remains murky.

At the Santa Cruz party, this guy's green trombone was the piece de resistance -- until police swooped in to confiscate it.

Needless to say, its apparent owner, identified by KSBW.com as 25-year-old UCSC student Gennady Tsarinsky, was rather attached to it.

Which makes sense, considering the joint could reportedly be worth as much as $6,000.

"I can't wait to see you in court," he says, walking astride the police officer lugging his joint away. "Dude, we're going to court man. We're totally going to court."

While all recreational marijuana use remains illegal on the federal level, California allows for anyone with a prescription to carry up to an ounce of pot.

It is, according to PressDemocrat.com, the Sunshine State's biggest cash crop, dwarfing even grapes at an estimated $14 billion.

While the irate herb enthusiast threatens litigation in the video, a chorus of oohing and ahhing can be heard from bystanders as the officer passes.

The video closes with the crowning compliment, "that's the fattest..."

And then it was gone.
