4/20. What a marvelous holiday. Its meaning to most is that its a time for all the wild hippies to do what they do, and smoke pot- America’s most dangerous, deadly drug. Wait, no that’s not right. That’s actually complete bullshit. The only reason 4/20 is what it is, is because of the stereotype people create around the “drug” that is marijuana. Most people just think its a day for people to be lazy and worthless and smoke weed all day. If that’s the case, then those people were lazy and worthless before they smoked a plant. 4/20 is designed to represent relaxation, friendship, and taking part in the most beautiful, complex plant on earth. Yes, plant. Not drug. The simple fact that this random day of the year has become globally known as a day to get especially high, speaks to the harmless impact this plant has had on all these people. Recent history and legislation has proven the lack of real risk and presence of rewards for state government as well as the end user. Its a billion dollar, underground industry. The government comes up with anything and everything to say that it would actually cost more to decriminalize or legalize it and the naive, ignorant people of this world just accept it and move on. The truth, which for some reason people don’t care to know, is that we spend millions of tax dollars a year just to keep people in prison that were caught with a small amount of weed, or even just a pipe and paraphernalia. That’s absurd. Absolutely absurd. If there is one person on this planet that believes it’s okay for people to be locked up for a gram of weed, but legally by cancer sticks(cigarettes) and many different types of alcohol, then they have lost there mind.
