Watching suicide squad wilst...
Wat Dat ???
Nevermind, just googled it. Everything Will Smith touches these days turns into a pile of shit it seems ...
*lets out big cloud of smoke*
Ahhhh, much better lol.
There's big goings on at dispensaries tomorrow to celebrate. Vendors with goods to sample... oh my!
Oh and today, West Virginia became the 29th medical marijuana state.
I'll join in the celebrations!!!!!!!!
Pass the bowl!!!!
All this pomp for a bastardization of what it was started as. The original celebrations of the date began for Adolf Hitlers birth day, but the upside is that in 10 days(on the 30th) it is the anniversary of his "death".
The word on the street was it started with a group of high school kids who would meet after school at 4:20 and smoke some weed.
Well they were still celebrating the birth of Hitler, and since in Germany and among the modern Nazis it is still a blessed day.......
It really is 420 today.
I really am celebrating.
They will be celebrating in DC today when activists pass out thousands of joints to congressmen near Capitol Hill.
"Congressional Democrats and Republicans will be given the opportunity to bake out a “Joint Session” of Congress on Thursday, as Americans across the nation celebrate the unofficial weed-smoking holiday known as 4/20.
Members of DCMJ, a pro-cannabis activist group, plan to camp out near Capitol Hill to puff-puff-pass out at least 1,000 free marijuana joints to members of Congress, congressional staffers, interns and credentialed members of the press. The group offers to give out two joints per person, as long as the tokers are older than 21."
Most of them will probably pocket them and smoke them away from camera's lol. What's with the whole 21 obsession in the USA, you can go get yourself killed for your country at 18 but aren't responsible enough to drink or smoke at 18 ???
Seriously though, I don't see too many takers on that giveaway !!!
Fuck this noise, I need to spark one up ...
That's been said for years. I remember when I was in the Navy at 18. I could serve during the Vietnam War but couldn't step into a bar stateside. Truth is though, who wants to be in a bar with a bunch of drunken 18 year olds besides other teenagers? But that's another subject.
The reason for 21 being the age you can purchase weed is because it's important for gathering support from the voting public (mothers). If that makes the difference between passing and not passing, then 21 it is.
wake and bake----you had the wrong thread first.....LOL
thats funny------I see he is coughing also....
78 years old....
I gotta confess, I'm under the influence this morning. I spread a little cannabutter on my english muffin..
I bought some brownie mix last week.....
I think I will make some today.....in honor of.....
Have you prepared your butter?
I love how advertisers ramp up their 4/20 ads and target weed smokers on this day.
I remember the old Pepsi ad "Today's to do list: absolutely nothing" lol.
I don't think 7/11 would ever have gotten as big as it did without the "Hoagie" ...
you are an idiot.....
7/11 got big with the slurpee.....
Then came The Big Gulp.
Let us take you back to 1971 to a high school 30 minutes north of San Francisco. A group of students who called themselves The Waldos heard that there was an abandoned patch of weed that belonged to a Coast Guard stationed by the Point Reyes Lighthouse.
The Coast Guard was worried about his commanding officer finding that patch, and so, he drew a map for his brother-in-law Bill McNulty, who then shared said map with his friends, The Waldos.
And so, The Waldos embarked on an adventure. Meeting up at 4:20pm, they smoked up before looking for that green treasure.
But it wasn't that easy, and this adventure would continue on for weeks. As a reminder to one another, The Waldos would say "4:20 Louie" when they saw each other in the hallways, which was ultimately shortened to just "4:20."
The green treasure was never found, but The Waldos would continue to signal 4:20 to each other as a code for "it's time to smoke."
This code was spread further when one of the Waldos' older brother, who managed two of The Grateful Dead sidebands, gave The Waldos access to all the rehearsals and parties.
Our friends over at High Times eventually adopted the phrase and over the years, it stuck. Smoking at 4:20pm became smoking on 4/20, at 4:20pm. As for The Waldos? They're still alive and well, and they share their story through their site, 420waldos.com.
So, there you have it. That's how 4/20 started. And now, you have the ultimate smoke circle story to share.
A town in Minnesota was ready to nab any pot smokers today with a very clever trap.
Too fucking funny lol.
After searching for the numbers many places have compiled a full list of names of EVERY person that has died from a marijuana overdose and 1 by 1 they will be listed below.
There are none on record ever. But 52,404 people died from prescribed opiods in 2016.
Separate names with a comma.
