first of all, whats up everyone, i havent browsed in like 2 weeks cause the apartment shebang

anyways, on the 420 issue.. look, if you want to celebrate it as a little holiday, go for it more power to you. its almost like planning a vacation day to just kick back and chill. that's why people look foward to it.. its a planned time to get retarded with friends and have a good time.

if you think everyone who smokes on 420 is a tool, you are living in a feking box. ever heard of st patrick's day? st patty's ay is a HELL of a lot more celebrated than 420, it is unhealthier, and it leads to many more accidents and fights. but nope, anyone who looks foward to st parick's day isnt a tool. why would they be a tool? i mean, its only alcohol.. :rolleyes:


there. i said it.

420 is a very dangerous day did you see how many kids attempted to do school shootings? It was all over the country.

I gotta agree with Spud on this. I'm not into smoking or whatever, but I mean why not have a holiday set aside where every does it together? At Christmas people celebrate Christ's birth, at St. Patty's day I'm not sure what the hell they celebrate but it involves lots of drinking which is A-OK, so why not have a holiday for smokers?

I completley agree with the point your making. Celebrate it if you want, good for you. Even if your smoking every half hour on 4/20,but I really don't need to hear about it. Nobody I knew was really freaking out over it with the exception of a few people who were just really pumped for it. I did however see a lot of threads online where people were just being retarded about it.

it's not a matter of being open minded. I just hate the lame kids that hype the hell out of 420 and also st pattys for that matter. Plus Ive taken quite a turn on the whole drug alcohol thing and dont really like to be involved with either anymore. I got drunk last night for the first time in 2 months and it only reminded me how much i dont like it anymore.

yea i dont like the posers either, but if youre gonna rag on posers, you gotta rag on them for everything.. wigger clothes, only listening to "cool" bands, special holidays, ricer mobiles, tattoos (god forbid someone get a tattoo and brand themselves as poser for life ;))

i dont ask that you agree with me, i just ask that you see my point

Legality is being fought by citizens all over the united states. The reason cannabis was made illegal is because of Henry J Anslinger, a racist anti-immigration politician in the late 1920's. Anslinger has friends in the plastic, and wood lumber businesses. Hemp threatened both industries, becuase Ford developed a new car made out of a hemp fiber body (which technologically surpassed any plastics at the time), and the Lumber Industry was in crisis due to the flailing economy. Hemp was a threat to both.

Anslinger used his yellow journalism skills to create many newspaper articles and stir up a lot of hype against hemp. He finally brought it to the US legal system, and provided his argument. Here is one of his claims: "Reefer makes darkies think they're as good as white men."

You can understand his motives.

In the official meeting, no mention of hemp was made. For if senators knew that Anslinger was talking about hemp, they would have kicked his ass all over the senate floor. Hemp was important since it was cheap, had a huge yield, and had a thousand uses.

Alcohol was made illegal, but as you remember, prohibition didnt work out very well.

Politicians made the point that alcohol is the bane of society and needs to be banned, but innocent law abiding citizens said that in moderation it is okay, and those who like to have a few glasses of wine with friends were doing nothing to negatively impact society. Much the same with hemp prohibition.

The other thread was closed for a reason. :dodgy:
