We all know the standard routine of 4/20, so no need to elaborate on that. But I'll pose this question: what is it good for? Who or what does it benefit? How is it rebellious in any way, and what exactly does it oppose? Honestly, the entire thing seems like kind of a sham because a) it seems to be more of an obligatory ritual than anything and b) it does nothing more than serve the selfish purposes of a lot of marijuana enthusiasts, all in one day. We get it: a lot of people smoke marijuana. Who cares? Why not make an actual statement by banding together and doing something useful for your community on 4/20? You say marijuana could benefit us all because it enables us to get more in tune with both ourselves and nature? Great - prove it. How about banding together with some fellow stoners and proving to "The Man" that you aren't worthless by rising above the people you all keep complaining about for being so oppressive to what you believe is a birthright? Pick up trash that was carelessly tossed in our already fragmented parks and forests. Try to put together a talent show or an organization that supports the arts (what comes from within) as opposed to what we're expected to watch on TV. Go to a retirement home and learn a thing or two from the elderly in your community who are so easy to push aside and forget about. Do...something! It's not hard to get involved and, to be perfectly honest, most of the individuals who pose a legitimate thread to tokers everywhere are filthy mother fuckers who don't give a shit about anything besides their bankroll, what they can buy with it, and how far up the pseudo-ladder of politics they can get. We already have a widely recognized day set aside for marijuana and those who enjoy it, so why not use that day to rise above those who refuse to acknowledge the potential benefits (or at least the potential harmlessness) of smoking it? We know a lot of those who oppose marijuana are hypocritical scum, so there's no excuse for not embracing that fact and using knowledge of it to rise above them. You have your mission: now realize it!
