Park ye olde VWs at the peace sign and whip out yer didgeridoos, friends. Make like you’re in cozy Amsterdam and get your hash brownies nice and cooked. Munch up. Read this. It’s time to consider the ganja.
1. HOW 4/20 CAME TO BE
The term “4/20″ was first coined in 1971. A buncha kids from San Rafael, California called themselves “The Waldos” and they’d meet up at the Louis Pasteur statue to light up. Pasteur figured out pasteurization April 20, 1862, coincidentally, but that’s got nothing to do with the ganja. Anyway, because of the runaway Waldos, the original term was actually “4/20-Louis.” Uh. Cool? What?
2. DENVER WILL BE STINKED OUT
There’s gonna be something in the air this weekend — 50,000 people are expected to light up at Denver’s Civic Center Park on 4/20 despite the state’s stance on public use.
3. THE BIBLICAL PROPHESY
Daniel 4:20 in the Bible states “O king, are that tree! You have become great and strong; your greatness has grown until it reaches the sky, and your dominion extends to distant parts of the earth.” This probably means something.
4. DEAD PRESIDENTS
Both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson had hemp farms. Yup yup. You know that means the Mrs. W and J respectively were all about the “hemp” brownies.
5. THE TOKE IS BETTER THAN THE BREW
Studies show that marijuana is less addictive than coffee. So, like, make what you will of these studies.
