4/20 Weekend Shenanigans
According to a few little birdies, some heart land states are CRACKIN' DOWN on the public this holiday. Tomorrow is the long celebrated 4/20 of 2019. Apparently, THIS is the weekend to pop some people for partaking. Calm your cookies, we aren't condoning breaking the law, actin a fool, being a scoundrel, or a downright dirty ole hippie, just wanted to let everyone KNOW, it's go time for law enforcement. Plan your weekend accordingly; to be a groovy, yet safe one. RIGHT MEOW.
You think it's normal for law enforcement to just run around all nimbly bimbly from tree to tree without keeping in mind that some of the public is tokin' on the herb? Nah. It's always a concern.
It's always a concern that commuters are operating their vehicle inebriated in some way. We could go all day and compare substances, their dangers, accident stats in the area, etc. But we will leave that to you and your Google search bar. ;)
Here's another lil tid bit for ya - The origin of the term 420, celebrated around the world by pot smokers every April 20, has long been obscured by the clouded memories of the folks who made it a phenomenon.
The Huffington Post chased the term back to its roots and was able to find it in a lost patch of cannabis in a Point Reyes, California forest. Just as interesting as its origin, it turns out, is how it spread.
It was Christmas week in Oakland, 1990. Steven Bloom was wandering through The Lot - that timeless gathering of hippies that springs up in the parking lot before every Grateful Dead concert - when a Deadhead handed him a yellow flyer.
“We are going to meet at 4:20 on 4/20 for 420-ing in Marin County at the Bolinas Ridge sunset spot on Mt. Tamalpais,” reads the message, which Bloom dug up and forwarded to the Huffington Post. Bloom, then a reporter for High Times magazine and now the publisher of CelebStoner.com and co-author of Pot Culture, had never heard of “420-ing”
The flyer came complete with a 420 back story: “420 started somewhere in San Rafael, California in the late ‘70s. It started as the police code for Marijuana Smoking in Progress. After local heads heard of the police call, they started using the expression 420 when referring to herb - Let’s Go 420, dude!”
The point is - Do whatever you do safely - meaning be responsible and don't do the things that could result in either yourself or those around you getting hurt. Kapeesh?
