4-20, you've been warned

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

4-20, you've been warned

Postby narcoleptish » Fri Apr 20, 2012 10:16 am

This is exactly the kind of story that is going to confuse the hell out of my elderly parents.

They'll think 420 people were arrested or warned and one of them was probably "that dope dealer around the corner" from their old neighborhood ten years ago.

I smiled when I saw the sign on the Barrymore Marquee saying 4/20 was Ben Masel day.

So that's what all those sirens were about yesterday.

Update: Cecil Adams performs a greater community service today by addressing the age-old question, "Is marijuana stronger than it used to be?"

Spoiler below!

Summary: "Yes, pot is stronger than in the old days. This is bad?"

Ah, but that vortex can drop down anywhere, not just the back alleys and abandoned playgrounds of the mean streets. It can whip up in a second floor office next to Wingra Creek, circa 1976. I can see Dr. B's big goofy face hovering above, gently lowering the "Ronald McDonald nose" onto my face and telling me that in a few minutes, I'll feel "just like Peter Pan, floating in the clouds". Ohhh, my sweet sweet laughing gas, rescue me from this dentist chair and I promise I'll be back in 6 months with a couple more cavities.

Nitrous Oxide. My gateway drug.

Average pot from the 70's wasn't as strong as the pharmaceuticals of today, measured in THC percentage. However, Thai stick and good hash were the equals of today's growths. You can only get so high no matter long you smoke either. It just takes more of one than the other. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it. BTW, if you hate pot and lefty pot smoker's, you still have a reason to celebrate today, 4-20. It's Hitler's birthday.
