The Origin of 420Uh-Oh hippies and everyone else aged 18-25. A new study has come out confirming the use of casual pot smoking (one to seven joints a week) is dangerous for your health. The harm lies in abnormal changes to the brain where the drug alters regions of the mind related to motivation and emotion. Apparently, this area of the brain is not fully formed yet and can be detrimental later in life.  Will this cause a problem for the upcoming Denver 420 Marijuana Festival that will be held on Sunday, April 20th? For those that are not familiar with the relevance of 4/20, let us educate you. The term “420” is in reference to the time, 4:20 p.m., when high school stoners in California would meet up after school to smoke a joint in the 1970’s, which really sucks for them. They sure did get out of school late back then.

420 FestivalAnyway, on January 1, 2014, Colorado legalized the recreational use of marijuana and now they are having a festival to celebrate. The festival also took place last year, but due to the fact that marijuana was not legal yet, people lashed out in violence, mainly due to the fact they weren’t stoned enough. Now, it’s party time! It’s not enough to have pot vending machines, there also needs to be a day set aside for the masses to congregate and smoke the herb. Even though the use of marijuana is still not legal to smoke publicly, we think that police are going to turn a blind eye largely due to the fact that the legalization has shot Denver’s hotel tourism way up and overall the city has seen a skyrocket of cash in its pocket. We would also imagine the restaurant industry has seen a huge surge in their profits as well.

The Easter Bunny is out this year All this begs the question…how would Jesus feel about this? Especially this year since it is his day after all, and Colorado is totally stealing his thunder.  Also, where is the Easter Bunny? Where are Easter egg hunts? Perhaps a way to kill two birds with one stone, people at the festival can hide buds in Easter eggs and they can do a really big hunt. Whoever finds the most eggs has to smoke the entire amount of weed they find at one time! Yay! Just as long as they are not 18-25 though. We wouldn’t want them to lose their motivation after all…
