Should 4/20 be a NATIONAL HOLIDA Y ?
Hey ! If you're gonna have a fictional Mexican holiday (Cinco de Mayo) as an excuse to get drunk on margaritas and tequila, and celebrate an obscure Irish saint (Saint Patrick's Day) as an excuse to get wasted... Then nothing's wrong with a national day of celebration to honor a miraculous herb with healing powers that gets you "high" !
So come celebrate 4/20 in Weed, California ! That's right... WEED, CA ! "High on the Slopes of Mt Shasta"... Come celebrate and watch "Tokey the Bear" as he crawls out of his cave after a long winter hibernation. If he sees his shadow, then winter's over, spring is here and everyone celebrates by firing up a big fatty ! If he doesn't see his shadow, then winter's over, spring is here and everyone celebrates by lighting up a big fatty !
Either way...... Party's ON !!!
And, HEY ! If Punxsutawney, PA can have an overfed rodent (groundhog, actually a MARMOT, a member of the squirrel family) named "Punxsutawney Phil"....
Then WEED, CA can have "Tokey the Bear" !!!
