Today is April 20, the 20th day of the 4th month, it’s known as 4:20 by those who embrace the cannabis culture.
Hash history has it that the doobie brothers and sisters like to gather at 4:20 in the afternoon to “pass the dutchie on the left hand side” as it were.
In Edmonton, it often happens at the legislature grounds. Other cities have their own ganji gathering place.
The marijuana multitude may not have to worry about going “one toke over the line” much longer; you know how the so-called war on drugs worked out.
Nineteen years ago, the United Nations highlighted the need for a drug-free world.
On the 20th anniversary of that session, marijuana in Canada is on track to be legalized, in 2018.
Canada’s Health Minister, Jane Philpott, told the UN last year that Canada would be legalizing and regulate reefer recreational use. She said Canada was changing to a pot policy based on evidence.
Not to be blunt, but it seems clear that in the future, Canada will mirror Cannabis Colorado and the flower friends will no longer have to search for support from their pot pals at 4:20.
Let me know what you think about that.
