    Huffington Post, A Big Mystery Involving The Origin Of 4/20 Has Finally Been Solved

    Happy Weed Day (4/20) to all the stoners on this website...from Colorado, home of the Rocky Mountain High.

    "Every April 20, stoners flock to places like San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park or the University of Colorado, Boulder, to celebrate the high holiday."

    That's a bit of trivia that you might not have appreciated.

    I can see this grow into a national holiday. The celebration of canibus ought to be a world wide event. The celebration if the mirricle plant we call hemp so long demonized by the asshole fascist who would enslave us all to worship filthy oil and coal at the detriment of the human race. It's time we did celebrate canibus in an effort to remove the stigma that exists to this day polluting the minds of otherwise good people. Good Americans ho have been brainwashed by our corrupt government and the corporate fascists who work to enforce lies that do much harm to our country our world our race the human race.

    I have never hid my propensity to use the evil weed as a relaxation agent. I am in fact proud to say I have been a regular smoker for some 40 years. I would not step foot in any state that criminalizes canibus . I will always stand up for what is right . The war on drugs is a war on poor people. Fuck the pigs.

    This was a big "holiday" during my smoking days. I remember a bunch of friends would chip in whatever money we could and would make a whole day out of it. I'm amazed how I graduated college with honors while still smoking damn near every day.

    I kind of find it ironic how I stopped smoking a couple years before it became legal out here in Oregon. I'm all for nationwide legalization and ending the war on drugs, but I just reached a point where I realized I could still enjoy a hike or mountain climb even if I wasn't high. Once I realized that then I just stopped entirely. Now my wife and I only partake on "special occasions" like during a camping weekend or at a concert.

    I look forward to the day we finally end the failed war on drugs once and for all, but I fear that's going to be put on hold for the foreseeable future considering we have an Attorney General who thinks that the movie "Evil Weed" is a documentary.

    Once again - any "Bernie or Bust" voter who is pro legalization and yet still thought the two candidates were the same should take a long look in the mirror on this holiday. Would Hillary have selected someone who thinks weed is the absolute worst drug in the entire world as her Attorney General? But who am I kiddin? The anti-Hillary "Democrats" will never admit that they made a mistake.

    "Just reached a point where I realized I could still enjoy without alcohol"

    Everybody just always drank and started in high school. About 25 years ago stopped to buy booze for a cruise and a new friend said he didn't need anything so I didn't buy anything. Haven't had three drinks since then and never realized didnt need it to socialize.

    Dockadams, It is not called 420. A joke grew out of the realization that after high school friends would get together and partake. It was around 4:20 when it happened.

    I saw a survey today. On the topic of legalization it was said that in the 1960's approx 16% were in favor of legalization. A current poll showed 60% in favor. These times they are a changing. Let's only ask 70 year old white men for an opinion. Welcome to the Republican family.

    Oh, yeah, okay, like the word refudiate, made up by someone.

    70 y.o. white men, hey, I'm 65, and I don't give a hoot what people smoke or drink, it's their life, not mine. Besides, I've had my days of drink and smoke, and, since I'm a veteran and receive vet's healthcare, I'm subject to random drug tests, and if they find anything positive for Maryjane or alcohol abuse, I could be kicked out of the VA programs. The VA like any other US Government program has 0 tolerance for drug use. When I was active duty, it was the same, no tolerance.

    I saw in a free joint giveaway today in DC some people were arrested because the Capital cops said they were on US Government property, woops! and, it doesn't matter what republicans do, people are going to buy and smoke weed no matter what. The war on drugs as we all know was and is a miserable failure.

    Dock, I meant no offense and have no age issues. My 70 yr old white man comment was just pointing out that the R's think that older white men should make all decisions regarding everything. Women's health, military, taxes, society, etc.. I think open mindedness on recreational legalization will take a major step forward once there's testing similar to a blood alcohol test that can show usage within a number of hours instead of just knowing someone used in the last 30 - 45 days.

    I didn't think you meant any offense, but you could've been writing about the 1970's too.

    I fact, while stationed at Eielson AFB, a couple of my dope smokin' buddies were transferred to this base before my arrival, at smoking and drinking parties held in Moose Creek and North Pole, just a little ways off the base, we used to get high and paranoid about us being transferred (ironically) to the same location, (conspiracy theorist gatherings) we were always looking over our shoulders and were always careful about where we stored our stash. I used to keep all of mine, and my paraphernalia in a Planter peanut container stuffed in a culvert about a mile from the base. The air police used to have drug dogs at the entry-exit gates all the time. We hardly ever smoked in our vehicles because if they found one seed in it, you were busted. They (the AF) had us just where they wanted us too, about 8 months before I was supposed to be discharge, EOTS, about 25 of us from the CE squadron were investigated and busted. I was served an article 15 for my participation in smokeathons. I recall the creepy feeling of being interrogated at the OSI office at the headquarters building. At my EOTS (separation) I still received an honorable discharge, full travel pay and some other benefits, perpetual healthcare and limited educational benefits. Some of my closet buddies were dishonorably discharged and lost everything. I felt lucky, but at least I didn't squeal on anyone. So, when it comes to the US Government, they still have closed minds. BTW, thanks for the kind response.
