**** off, the lot of you. 4/20 is a tradition, or "holiday" if you will (unofficial, of course), that brings people together. For the purpose of smoking pot, obviously, but that isn't the point. The point is ...












































































































**** me if I know, I'm stoned off my ass! :laugh:

And who's the fool who wears the crown?

I don't smoke dope and I can't recall..........................ever having done so. 420. That's like a greenish tinted grey, right?

As a stoner, i find that 4/20 is really f'ing ridiculous. I want to get high whenever, why does one day hold any more importance than another, or 4:20 in the afternoon. Just load the pipe and smoke it, who cares what time it is. Let's stop wasting precious time and get high. Damn. Who really cares about 4/20, cause I don't.

Well, the accepted explanation for the origin of 4/20 is that, back in the 1970s, a gaggle of teenagers at San Rafael High School in California would meet every day at 4:20 behind the school's watertower to smoke marijuana. Another is that marijuana once grew in the wild along Highway 420 in Ontario, Canada (there is an annual legalisation protest every 4/20 on that road). Still ANOTHER is that, back in the day, many high school detentions let out at 4:20 in the afternoon. But my favorite origin theory comes from these lines from H.P. Lovecraft's "Within the Walls of Eryx," which go: "My route must have been far from straight, for it seemed hours before I was free of the mirage-plant's pervasive influence... When I did get wholly clear I looked at my watch and was astonished to find that the time was only 4:20." So there ya go.

Yeah, that's also a problem I have with 4/20, there is no concrete evidence of what is the orginal 4/20, it's stupid. If 4/20 had some sort of good significance, or a cool story begind it, I wouldn't be so hostile about it, but there isn't, so i remain hostile. :alien:

I always thought it had to do with either decriminalization or legalization,
I'll take the later, tax it and balance the budget....I'm going to buy some Nabisco stock..cough, cough, cough.....

And now the final solution can be applied.

I dig what you're saying, but that line from the H.P. Lovecraft poem is pretty cool...
