4/20

Here we are, 4:20 on 4/20, what should we talk about?

Well today is a well-known holiday for pot smokers. I know this because every news station I turn to today is saying so. LOL, what a difference a year makes.

Anyways, yes, today has become a traditional holiday for pot heads everywhere, I once wrote a post on the whole thing, I don’t think that was here though, I think that was on the old MySpace blog. To bad that’s gone, I could just post a link right here that would show what I wrote on the subject, Oh well, it was a really cool read on how 4-20 came about. Maybe next year I’ll rewrite it here. Here’s a couple of links on the subjects I wrote about:

Today though, I want to talk about the other traditions this time of the year and the tragic anniversaries that have come from them.

First off we have Hitler’s birthday:

Yea, that alone is enough not to celebrate this day. And of course there is Columbine:

There was the BP oil spill:

Yes, today has a few bad anniversaries.

And it seems there has long been a tradition of attacks on America this time of year:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston_Marathon_bombings

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virginia_Tech_massacre

Some of these tragic events were planned out purposely on the same day to mark the anniversaries of the other ones, leading back to what happened in the Waco siege which ended April 19th, 1993:

Plus April 19th is Patriots Day:

But for what ever reason, this week of April can be a painful one to remember and a scary one to wait through each year…

Thank God those stoners picked today to get high, celebrate, and enjoy life a little.

Sorry if I killed anyone’s buzz.

  1. I had no idea all these events occurred on 4/20, Im glad at least one positive movement can be part of it, a healing one at that…Now i really need a joint, but with a respectful moment of silence…

    Peace ❤

  2. I wish medical marijuana was legal here. It’s probably the only drug I haven’t tried for chronic pain. It sucks.

    Did you know that the feds linked the Oklahoma City bombing to Waco within hours? Then Harris and Klebold highjacked the same 24 hour time period. I’m glad nothing horrific like those events happened yesterday. Actually I should check the news before I make a statement like that. There are sick people who would love to become infamous like these murderers.

    • Check your states laws, as i believe possession is decriminalized nationwide…I hear you, the other alternatives for chronic pain are MUCH worse

      • Thank you, Donna and Linda. I feel anything is worth a try. I’ve had several spine surgeries. I’ve taken every pain medicine they make. The side effects were horrible. I’ve decided no more surgeries. If pot helps, I’m willing to try it.

    • It would really help your pain. I’m hoping it will be legalized for medicinal use statewide soon. I believe Georgia even just passed a medical vaporized THC legalization bill. You should look into it. Perhaps your state has pills or vapor available. God bless and I hope you find a solution to your chronic pain. Not a fun boat to be in 😦

      • No prob! I think they are making a 100% bioactive and the psychoactive element of it has been controlled so it is more effective on pain and less likely to cause addiction if I’m explaining it correct. The patch will hopefully be an alternative for opiate based pain pills and available within the year. I hope the patch becmore used more widely – hopefully those crooks at the FDA will pick it up instead of strike it.

  3. And Hitler be all like “what up there I’m captain grumps, don’t I look quite down in the dumps? grumpin here and grumpin there, I be grumpin EvErYwHeRe!”

    That picture of Hitler tho!

      • Is he from the racist faction of the nut brigade? If there’s one thing that pisses me off its racism, especially having grown up in the south and seeing the realities of what it did to our country. We are still recovering from it. Civil rights wern’t granted that long ago. Pretty horrific where we were and pretty promising where we are going (unless racist assholes try to F it up again).

      • I don’t know brian, (it’s one of Nancy’s kids) but BJ Figat (another one f Nancy’s kids) is posting his brother worships Hitler, I found it funny cause a while back nancy was posting her husband’s family were actually Nazis. And I actually shouldn’t even be getting into all of this… but man that family is a strange one. As for racist, least year when I started Zero’s World I got into it with a few racist, but those types are Perry cowardly and after promising to flood my Facebook with hundreds of white pride friends, they ran away. Racists and homophobes are the most cowardly of the hypo-crites! I love watching them go the way of the dinosaurs… And I believe one day they will.
