Today is National Weed Day, a day dedicated to discussing the legalization of marijuana.

Why did pot-heads choose April 20 as their national holiday?

Because 4/20 or 420 is often used in slang to refer to the smoking of marijuana. Some believe that the term originated from a group of teenagers in San Rafael, California, who would meet at a statue of Louis Pasteur in their high school grounds to smoke marijuana at 4:20 p.m., when detention let out.

Somehow, from a small group of wastoid teenagers, that holiday has evolved into a national celebration for all people who suck the sap out of our nation’s productivity. On this day, those who favor legalization of marijuana gather together and smoke a lot of pot. In other words, this day does not differ a whole lot from any other day for these people.

The biggest celebration is held on the University of Colorado’s Boulder campus, which generally becomes engulfed in a mushroom cloud of cannabis smoke this time of year. Reportedly, as many as 10,000 people gather each year to smoke pot with others, instead of at home in their mom’s basement with a towel under the door.

As most bloggers know, if you even put the words “weed,” “marijuana,” and “legal” in your post, a very passionate group of marijuana advocates with an unbelievable amount of spare time will come on your site to debate the issue.

To those people, I say “Welcome!”
