Hell, I'd be willing to bet just about everyone who celebrates 420 day also gets high on those hollidays I posted.

The difference is that there is no such thing as "Booze Day".

My main point is that potheads (real pot heads, not the casual user) tend to be the most annoying people in the world.

We get it, you really like to get high and play x-box, you think the most important social issue, and most (if not only) interesting topic of discussion is the legailzation of pot, and for some reason you invented a holiday where the sole purpose is to do what you do every other day anyway. And for the record, Dave Mathews sucks!
Blame yourself for that one, I have 364 "booze days" (365 would be ridiculous).

Didn't even realize it was 420 today, I hadn't even heard of it till I was living in Vancouver 4-5 years ago. Never celey'd it before, but I think that may change this year. Put it this way: the final exam I'm the most worried about this semester is done at 4pm. The timing couldn't be better.

EDIT: I'm a casual user(barely do it at all during the school year, in the summer I'll get into it a little though), but I'm just reading some of the posts and have to say something. I have no problem at all with people who don't like it. But people who trash weed & those who do it, and then turn around and get sh*ttered every weekend are hilarious. If anything, alchohol's worse for you. Hey kettle, you're black.

Maybe 10 years ago, but pretty much everyone I know who is my age and still celebrates 420 doesn't have much else going on in their lives. I doubt it is a coincidence either.

I used to be staunchly against it; then I realized the errors of my ways. For some reason I really got into it once I was done university.

At least the pot losers are being honest about there phony ass day. St. Patricks and New Years should be called booze day, and stampede should be booze week, along with Oktoberfest.

If the Stoners picked the birthday of some rastafarian prophet dude in India, it would be just as silly as naming it after a police code.

Stupidass excuses to drink and/or fata oneself up, is what creates brotherhood and culture.
Except the difference is that it's the casual drinkers who use those days as an excuces to get drunk. Us regular boozers just realize there's more going on while we're drunk than usual.

Exactly. I guess my point is that stoners use the day to celebrate the fact that they're stoners. It's lame. If you're stoner, cool, whatever. It's really not something to pump yourself up over. I don't tell people how awesome and bad ass I am because I enjoy the sauce.

I agree 100%. Way too many stoners talk about getting high like it is some sort of spiritual experience, and they're really enhancing their lives by doing it. If that's the case then why do you just sit around playing COD all day?

Hilarious! The non-pot smokers decide to get stressed over something that's got nothing to do with them. Interesting that they decide to wade in to a thread just to hate. Hate on! I'll be getting my fun on tonight!

Let us burn one, from end to end.
And pass is over to me my friend.
Burn it long, but burn it slow,
to light me up before I go.

If you dont like my fire, then dont come around.
Cause I'm gonna burn one down.
Yes I'm gonna burn one down

My choice is what i chose to do;
and if I'm causin no harm,
it shouldn't bother you.
Your choice is who you chose to be;
and if your causin to harm, then your alright with me.


If you dont like my fire, then dont come around, cause I'm gona burn one down.
Yes i'm gonna burn one, down.

Herb the gift, from the Earth,
and what's from the earth is of the greatest worth.
So before u knock it, try it first.
and you'll see it's a blessing and it's not a curse.
If you dont like my fire, then dont come around,
cause i'm gonna burn one down.
Yes i'm gonna burn one.
