Celebrating 420 or 4:20 or 4/20 National Weed Day Quotes and Jokes
On the Presidential Election Day 2012, voters in Colorado and Washington state legalized the use of marijuana for recreational use. What’s next? The push toward legalization may seem like a modern movement. But Peter Bourne, who served as President Jimmy Carter’s drug czar in the late ’70s, says it’s been a long time coming.
“The [Carter] administration’s position basically was that the penalty for marijuana use did infinitely more damage to people and their lives than the drug did,” he says.
So Carter asked Congress to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana and suggested states be free to legalize if they chose. Pro-legalization advocacy groups ran ads on television in support of the president. Legalization seemed inevitable.
Then came the Reagan administration.
President Reagan famously called pot the most dangerous drug in the United States, and by the end of the ’80s, Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” campaign had made the issue of legalization far less popular.
“To me,” Bourne says, “[that’s] equivalent to telling somebody who’s depressed to have a nice day.”

Pot dispensary opens next to ‘at-risk’ Anaheim school
It’s near the Southwest Anaheim campus of the Orange County Department of Education’s ACCESS program, a continuation high school that serves about 150 “at-risk” students ages 13 to 18, some who have battled drug and alcohol addiction, administrators said.
The doors to that school, located inside four suites of an adjacent strip mall at 1895 W. Katella Ave., are all within about 100 feet of the pot dispensary. State law says that no dispensary can be within 600 feet of a school.
So if they move it 601 feet away??????????????????????????????
Charlie Sheen – new ‘smokesperson‘ for National Weed Day!
Could there be a better choice???
420 a.k.a. National Weed Day, Marijuana Appreciation Day, National Smoke Day and Stoners Day.
The origins of 420 are a bit cloudy or covered in smoke, if you will. Urban legend has it that back in 1971, San Rafael High School students used “420” as a code word to meet after school at 4:20 p.m. to light up a doobie and get stoned. A slightly different version says that on 4/20 in 1971, a group of college students lit up joints to protest for the legalization of marijuana.
While this holiday is fast becoming one of the more popular here in the States, Marijuana is still an illegal substance.

Here are some 420 quotes:
“I like smoking a pipe of sweet hemp.” – Abraham Lincoln
“They lie about marijuana. Tell you pot-smoking makes you unmotivated. Lie! When you’re high, you can do everything you normally do, just as well. You just realize that it’s not worth the f-ing effort. There is a difference.” – Bill Hicks
“Why is marijuana against the law? It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit . . . unnatural?” – Bill Hicks
“Well, as I understand it, the main supporters are beer companies and the pharmaceutical companies. I’d like them to show me the dead bodies from marijuana. But they can’t because there aren’t any.” -Jack Herer
“You are 70% beautiful, 75% naughty, 80% sweet, 95% true, 100% lovely. In total if you sum up, you are a 420.”
“I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?” -Willie Nelson
There were 3 men and they all died in a car crash and went to hell. When they got there the devil asked them all in turn a question.
To he first he asked, “What was your biggest sin on earth?” and the man replied, “Oh man, I just love alcohol and being drunk man.” So the devil showed the man to a room full of alcohol of every type and description and he put the man inside and said “see you in 100 years” and locked the door.
To the second man he asked the same question and the man replied “oh man I just love to have sex with the ladies, I was really unfaithful to my wife man”. So the devil took the man and showed him to a room full of hundreds upon thousands of georgeous and beautiful naked women. The man ran inside and the devil said “see you in 100 years” and locked the door.
The third man’s answer to the question was “oh man I just LOVE weed! Im high all the time man and I can’t live without it!”. The devil showed the man to a room packed with the most amazing grade-A bud you’ve ever seen, stacked to the roof! The man went inside and the devil locked the door after saying “see you in 100 years”.
100 years later the devil came by to let the three men out. He opened the door to the first man’s room and found the man collapsed on the ground, passed out with empty bottles laying around him and puke all over him. He was a mess.
The devil opened the 2nd man’s door and the man came running out of the room and cried “IM GAY! IM GAY!”. Finally the devil came to the third man’s room and opened the door. Sitting in the middle of all the bud, in the exact same position the devil had left him in was the man. He looked up at the devil and with a single tear rolling down his cheek he asked ; “hey man, got a light?”
A hippie was walking down the street one day when a pixie pounced on him. “Today is your lucky day!” said the pixie. “I’m gonna give you two wishes. What will the first one be?” The hippie thinks for a moment and then says, “I want a never-ending joint.” So the pixie snaps his fingers and there is this king-sized joint. The hippie jacks it up and starts puffing. After five hits the joint is still the same length. Next the pixie says, “…And number two?” The hippie replies, “This is so cool man! Gimme another one!”
