@hchavers@JoetatoChip Smoking is just bad regardless- sorry, but if you think of it as what it really is- inhaling the partially oxidized effluent of plants, it’s about the same as standing in a pile of burning leaves [except for the lack of psychoactive substances available in the aforementioned leaves vs MJ or Tobacco].
/giphy lung damage
Vaping Cannabis on the other hand, or using the extracted THC/CBD compounds in food items- is much more medically supportable, because it’s much less [immediately and obviously] damaging in ways that promote Cancer and heart/brain disease.
Hmmm…that seems to imply that fuck instances are not free. Calling fucking bullshit. Bringing in @carl669 (aka fuckmaster of Meh) for confirmation/clarification on the matter; your fucking assistance is much appreciated.
In anticipation of the Fuckmaster of Meh ruling, I hereby submit
@carl669@f00l@llangley@RiotDemon Holy hair color! I haven’t heard this in years! It’s gonna be stuck in my head all day!
And now it’s time for a fresh cup of shut the eff up. I’m up before the sun with a load of yard work to tackle. I think I’m going to have to dig that shirt up and wear it today in honor of Fuck-it-all Day.
420, 4:20, or 4/20 (pronounced four-twenty) is slang in cannabis culture for the consumption of cannabis, especially smoking cannabis around the time 4:20 p.m. and also refers to cannabis-oriented celebrations that take place annually on April 20 (which is 4/20 in U.S. form).
In 1971, five high school students – Steve Capper, Dave Reddix, Jeffrey Noel, Larry Schwartz, and Mark Gravich – in San Rafael, California, calling themselves the Waldos because “their chosen hang-out spot was a wall outside the school”, used the term in connection with a 1971 plan to search for an abandoned cannabis crop that they had learned about, based on a treasure map made by the grower. The Waldos designated the Louis Pasteur statue on the grounds of San Rafael High School as their meeting place, and 4:20 p.m. as their meeting time. The Waldos referred to this plan with the phrase “4:20 Louis”. After several failed attempts to find the crop, the group eventually shortened their phrase to simply “4:20”, which ultimately evolved into a code-word that the teens used to mean consuming cannabis.
Mike Edison says that Steven Hager of High Times was responsible for taking the story about the Waldos to “mind-boggling, cult-like extremes” and “suppressing” all other stories about the origin of the term. Hager wrote “Stoner Smart or Stoner Stupid?”, in which he attributed the early spread of the phrase to Grateful Dead followers – after Reddix became a roadie for the Dead’s bassist, Phil Lesh – and called for 4:20 p.m. to be the socially accepted hour of the day to consume cannabis.
And onward, for the “holiday”, the cultural tradition, the jokes, the t-shirts!
