Today is a big day if you like to partake in the inhalation of marijuana. The time of 4:20 PM was singled out as the appropriate time during the day to smoke the wacky weed by an editor of High Times. Although I don’t smoke pot myself I have in the past and I am a huge advocate of the legalization of marijuana. Our prisons are filled with people that have consumed and sold something that is legal in some states. That seems like a silly and huge contradiction to me.
Opponents of the legalization of marijuana will argue that it’s a “gateway drug” that will lead to experimentation and abuse of other drugs. Let me set the record straight: It leads you to the gateway of Pizza and Funions. Legalization of pot would have a drastic effect on this country. Video game sales would skyrocket and furniture stores would experience a record amount of sofa and recliner sales. The police would not be happy as there never would be another speeding ticket written again. The speed limit on the highways would have to be reduced to 35 miles an hour. Imagine how much fuel we would conserve.
Legalize weed and your husband will never say to you “There’s nothing to eat in this house.” He’ll grab an onion, two slices of bread, some chocolate syrup and a can of tuna and proudly proclaim he has discovered “the greatest sandwich in the world!” The divorce rate would decrease dramatically as your fights would go like this: SHE: “Didn’t I tell you yesterday to take out the trash?” HE: “I’m not sure.” SHE: “Me either. Where are the Doritoes.”
So if you happen to be driving this afternoon around 4:20PM and it seems like there aren’t a lot of people on the road, don’t worry, they’ll all be at The Golden Corral.
