Happy 4-20 Day posbang? (or negbang for some)
This comment section is about to get lit up
Gonna rock this joint.
While I have not imbibed in many years, I can say that marijuana is a gateway drug...a gateway to FUN and the MUNCHIES!!!
I once opened a box of Cookie Crisp after imbibing . . . and ate the whole thing all at once.
Glad I didn't open the box of Little Friskies.
I basically celebrated 420 on Good Friday, so I'll sit out today. Plus I have work and I'm a bit of a lightweight.
Grow the fuck up.
Needs some weed
I thought I'd used the whole global supply in '82
I've never smoked a day in my life, and I used to be one of those "anti-weed" guys.
But as I aged, I've seen how much of a money maker it can be if legalized and how much better it is compared to seeing people getting hooked on pills.
So you're not reallllly the crazy uncle you portray yourself as, then??
The profit will eventually legalize it, but the health benefits for those truly in need (chemotherapy patients, those with glaucoma, etc) are why it always should have been. Also, legalization is the right answer to end the violence that stems from black market dealings of it.
Is your argument that marijuana use is childish, or that the celebration of 4/20 is childish? Regardless, you should chill out. Maybe smoke some weed?
Nothing wrong with marijuana. It should be legalized in every state. Alcohol has a worse affect on people than weed and that is legal. The 4/20 thing is juvenile as fuck.
I pretty much agree with this. I don't need a weed holiday. Sometimes I smoke weed. Sometimes I don't smoke weed. I don't like being told when I should smoke weed.
I don't like being told when to drink beer, but St. Patty's Day is still fun.
Well, one doesn't HAVE to smoke weed on 4/20. It's simply a celebratory holiday type thing. 50 & rainy today here in Denver for the big Civic Center Park rally. I went to work.
... this is a blog that has a high % of college students on it, right? I'm old, but no reason not to embrace 4/20 as a day to celebrate. Are you also against St. Patty's day, New Years, and other celebratory holidays?
April 20th has not been, is not, and will never be a holiday.
But Columbus Day is, and he used to cut the hands off indigenous folks (and then hang the severed hand around their neck) who didn't comply with his demand to bring he and his crew more gold. So, you know, maybe a day devoted to getting high and playing hacky sack and frisbee and laying out in a park in the sun wouldn't be a terrible thing? Don't we have enough days devoted to war and murderers and such?
I mean, the man was nailed to a fucking cross!
Pretty harsh if you ask me.
What do YOU call a day that has special significance to a large group of people?
I'm not a member of any group that "celebrates" 4/20, just like I don't celebrate Yom Kippur, Ramadan, Kwanzaa, or Chinese New Year. But that doesn't make it less of a holiday to others.
...so you must celebrate Festivus, amirite???
I wouldn't be too sure it will never be a holiday but whatever floats your boat. There are a lot of stupid holidays that seem more absurd on the face of it.
You made a pretty smarmy remark and are getting called out for it.
Pick your battles somewhere else. Maybe go hammer out the soccer thread I made? I know you love soccer.
State? Like NSW?

It's Jim Harbaugh. Nothing else needs to be said. Plus, the choo choo mother fucker stemmed FROM THIS BLOG.
which is held on campus since 70's, which also has ties to this blog.
6 degrees man.......pot makes you think that way
Ahh, Hash Bash. Celebrated on 4/1 back in my days as an undergrad. Many days (and moons) ago.
One could argue that reading a blog that is largely focused on 18-22 year olds playing football, in April, is pretty childish. But it's fun to be childish sometimes.
Happy 4/20! Everyone remember to leave out milk and cookies for Snoop.
....you mean milk and special brownies.
/this was funny!
MARAWANA KILLS! BEWARE
What does Notre Dame and marijuana have in common?
They both get smoked in bowls!
4-8 teams do not get smoked in bowls. Same with 3-9 teams.
sounds like they got smoked 8 and 9 times, respectively.
sadly, not in a bowl.
They still get rolled and torched.
our due date is next week, but I predicted months ago today would be the day. Solid chance still. She woke up at about 4:20 am thinking it might be time but false alarm.
For the upcoming addition to your family!
So, if it's a girl will you go with Mary Jane?
And if it's a boy will you go with Bud?
Wife's due date is 4/28 for our second. Congrats, brother.
a 4/20 baby
was born on 4/20?
Since the 1970s
Canada is next to legalize, U.S. needs to follow suit.
New study out today says 61% of Americans are in favor of legalization.
But there's a massive difference between age ranges. Basically, the people who are old enough to be in powerful positions vehemently oppose legalization.
Also, large differences of opinion based on income ranges as well.
I know someone in the industry and he says that nearly 50% of his retail customers are over 55. I think it depends more on political affiliation and geography than age.
The study actually came out a few weeks ago and while it shows the demograpic breakdowns on those who were a part of it, it doesn't show the percentages of who are in favor of legalization but I don't disagree with you at all in terms of the age gap in it.
The percentage of those in favor of legalization keeps growing everytime a study is done though so the gap is widening and I think that the "case study" put on in Colorado is moving people towards widening that gap even further. Even just the tax income windfall for the state is enough for more States to put it on their ballots.
EDIT: The more I think about it, I don't think there is much of a difference between ages or income but moreso of what political party you closer identify with.
Pretty sure that's 5% higher than last year. It will continue to rise to probably 2/3rds of the country favoring. All I know is the Michigan roads/infrastructure and school programs could really benefit.
sadly, they probably won't see a dollar from it.
If the state of Michigan legalized it in the next year or in a couple years, where would all the revenue go? (serious question)
then if there is anything left over, ho hos and twinkies.
But how many congressman/women have tried to table a serious debate about this? %61 of the population and, 0 politicians? Is it still 0? I know a few years ago it was like %55 and literally 0. DEMOCRACY!!!!

OG Maize & Blue!
I DO miss getting high. I miss the sound of music when high (always awesome), the taste of food when high (also awesome just never enough of it) and I miss jokes when high cause everything and everybody is hillarious. And i miss sex when high.
To be clear sex is always awesome but if memory serives it's especially awesome when high.
I smoked a TON of pot from 1975-1981 but I think the last time I got stoned was about 15-20 years ago.
just get high then.
Was thinking the same thing. Sounds like he really enjoyed it - why fucking stop?
Random drug testing at work. And I like my job.
I'm guessing airline pilot. You can't be an MD because that would be in youy username.
And Hi-Lo drivers don't usually have wives that look like yours.
Part owner of a company that produces a medical device surgeons use and we support the cases intra-operatively. Random drug testing is in place for everyone (me included) and if somebody comes up dirty they lose their credentialling and access to the OR.
Not worth it so I'll just reminisce and take shit from you guys for being a pussy.
An employed pussy but a pussy none-the-less.
And I'm not even going to call you a pussy.
Should the rules change in your office, be careful. The quality of the weed today vs. 20 years ago is mind blowing (no pun intended...sort of). I don't think shitty weed exists anymore.
About five years ago they ordered up random suprise on the spot drug testing for an entire facility out of state. The results were they had to fire about forty percent of their staff the next day according to company policy.
The gap in production while they tried to restaff and train the facility almost sunk the entire company.
The new current drug testing policy now excludes marijuana from the panel company wide.
I am a company owner and my policy is this: Do whatever you want at home. It is none of my business as long as it doesn't affect your work. Don't bring that part of life to work with you and in return I will never drug test anyone. Never had an issue yet (knock on wood). The most successful people around me smoke (including doctors, professors, bankers, engineers, other business owners, etc) or drink or have some other vice. None of us are immune and the people who are usually most comfortable in their own skin aren't that concerned about such things. To each his own.
Never done it, and now that I work in the aerospace industry, probably never will.
gateway to heaven
... until it became legal here in WA. I recommend you visit.
You're killing me. I'm in WA. Unfortunately, I work for a company that still drug tests, and because they have locations all over the country, they won't make an exception for us. But my wife can enjoy occasionally. Really helps her sleep.
But I did get high
I did listen to good "Chill" music on Sirius
I did have great sex
And now I'm eating a damn good fudgsicle (okay four, they're the small ones!)
I feel happy....
... every day is 4/20, and it is glorious. My alcohol consumption has gone way down, I feel healthier from it, and it is SO MUCH cheaper to occassionally use one of many forms of weed available than it is to even have a few drinks.
A much better alternative than boozing, but it's still not a "healthy" thing. Inhaling smoke is never good for your body.
You must have done some other things in your life to help with your health.
maybe he is referring to the brownies
He could have lost 100lbs by switching from booze to weed.
Also, vaping is the cool thing to do now. No smoke.
They also sell MJ infused baked goods, candies, and even pop!
about weed as a whole there
about weed as a whole there
I get high a couple times a week and have for a while. I also haven't had to inhale smoke while doing so in a couple years. It's not just joints and bongs anymore
It, you are still putting a narcotic into your body.
Hey, I'm all for it if you enjoy it, but don't try and sell it as some super healthy thing to do like you are inhaling a chicken breast with green beans.
is NOT a narcotic, no matter what DARE told you.
Were all wrong.
All narcotics are drugs, but not all drugs are narcotics. Some people call marijuana a narcotic, but that is fear-mongering.
So Nancy Reagan lied to us for all those years?
...whom I'm certain was high as balls.
Cheaper it is. You can buy a quality 6 pack of beer for 10-12 bucks.
Not sure how much cheaper weed is. If it's less, you must be buying some pretty nasty shit.
But again, I don't know much about it so if it's worked in your life, flame on.
... I buy a case of mints (one example of an edible) that has 30 mints for $35. 1 mint is all you need for a nice long slow buzz that last 5-6 hours. That's ~$.20 per hour of buzz. Not going to get that through alcohol in an enjoyable fashion.
The math is similar for other forms as well -- including concentrated or joints. And when it's legal, the quality is abundant. I can get a grade A joint that would be good enough for a group of 4-6 people to be delightfully stoned for an evening for $10-15. I've given up the days of drinking Mad Dog, so not going to be able to beat that price.
its like the crack cocaine of weed. One good hit and you go from sober to the highest youve ever been on weed in 3 seconds.
I would say its a full day of heavy smoking all at once, and takes about five hours to wear off.
And you feel better the next day than you would if you drank that six pack.
I feel like this should have been started by DarkerBlue. Has anyone seen DarkerBlue? Any MGoPolice that can put out an APB on DarkerBlue?
Not interested in anything else to do with today but the actual meaning of April 20th-
Now here's a dude who needs to do a J.
You think the people that came up with Lima Bean Respect Day weren't super baked?
think you misspelled posbong...
I used to treat today like Christmas when I was younger; good memories (?) of boxing a small bathroom with multiple blunts with some buddies. Now that I'm older, I'll be enjoying a small bowl while watching the new episode of Fargo tonight. How times have changed...
Happy 420 everybody!!
I dug the episode but don't know if I buy Ewan McGregor as a Wisconsinite at all yet. Then again, that could be an intentional choice by Hawley.
Recall walking out of a chem lab in the old chemistry building on 420 day (1976?) to join in on the celebration on the diag. Now, more than forty years later, I live in CA where its legal. Recreational hasn't been implemented yet, in fact last week the news from Sacramento is that CA is probably going to merge medical and recreational when they "go live" next year - YAY, no more ridiculous two-tier system where 80-90% of the medical patients are perfectly healthy millenials and Gen Y'ers.
It is also weed week on Weediquette. It's a good show that tackles all sorts of societal, political and legal issues involving marijuana.
Smoke 'em if you got 'em - Happy 420 everyone!
The summer before my freshman year of college I worked at a burger place on Plymouth Road. On the day of Hash Bash I had someone come in and order a vanilla burger. I wonder where that man is now...
AND today is my birthday
Shitshow of losers spread all across downtown Denver right now and more pouring in as 4:20pm is now just 45-mins away. Traffic is a mess and getting worse
has yet to chime in yet?
He's sitting in a corner smoking a Eucalyptus dimebag
The significance of 420...Yes I feel ashamed. Haven't smoked weed since living in Mary Markley in the 80s and going to the Arb with my dormmates and having a blast.
“KNOW YOUR DOPE FIEND. YOUR LIFE MAY DEPEND ON IT! You will not be able to see his eyes because of the Tea-Shades, but his knuckles will be white from inner tension and his pants will be crusted with semen from constantly jacking off when he can't find a rape victim. He will stagger and babble when questioned. He will not respect your badge. The Dope Fiend fears nothing. He will attack, for no reason, with every weapon at his command-including yours. BEWARE. Any officer apprehending a suspected marijuana addict should use all necessary force immediately. One stitch in time (on him) will usually save nine on you. Good luck.
Never tried it and never will, but I do feel the "It's 4/20--time to smoke weed!"
crowd is really lame, the same type of people who laugh and high-five whenever they see the number 69. Smoke weed or don't smoke weed--they are your lungs--but the fascination with the made-up "police code" for weed is really lame.
