A Confluence of Events

I was sort of hoping somebody was going to hide marijuana joints all over my apartment for me to find and smoke tomorrow, but I doubt it’s going to happen. :(

    Oh, come on!

    4/20 and Easter.

    Get it?

    What’s weird is nobody seems to know where “420″ came from. Ryan Grim has the best theory.

    I have a personal story about 4/20.

    I smoked pot every day for over thirty years and never missed a day of work, but I got tired of spending all that money so I decided to grow my own in my tiny linen closet. I saved thousands of dollars over a ten year period.

    Never bought or sold anything.

    To make a long story short, I faced felony charges and ended up spending sixteen thousand dollars plus a year and a half of hell in the court system.

    Three years after that disaster, I got invited to a 4/20 party after work. I hadn’t smoked a thing in 3 years and I was in a very small room with about 20 kids and no air conditioning on a hot day. The marijuana was of high quality – to say the least -.

    I knew I was going to pass out if I didn’t leave the room. Somehow, I got up and joined the parents of my hosts in another room.

    I hope to imbibe sometime in the future, under different circumstances.

    The good folks at Wheeler Farm, Al-Anon, and The Food Bank let me work off 100 hours of community service after work.

    Much thanks!

    Honestly, Much thanks!

    All of the people involved in the above segment have left the state and I wouldn’t tell you who they are, if you cut it out of my spleen.

    Non-violent incarceration is a very unfunny joke in this country and is wasting tons of money. Everybody knows this by now and it’s great that things are finally changing.

    Here is a very recent ad put out by “Brave New Films”:
