I'm 41 years Old and smoked quite a few in the day. But since becomeing a firefighter and the piss test thing I've been so clean I could drive a school bus
(and a fire truck for that matter!).

I've seen reefer called 420 lately. What gives. When I was a stoner we had a day that everyone would spark one. Was it April 20th at 4:20pm? Is that the link?

Woooooooooooooooo.............................Dude !
Anyway I hope it does become leagal and that way the taxes generated could pay for a new war or 2. Thats if the republicans get another 4 years! Ha!

I was told that 420 is the LAPD code for Marijuana posetion... Don't know if that is true though and never bothered to check.

I guess I just dated myself!
I wish I had a few pics handy of me back in highshool!
I was the typical stoner. Long hair, Permed. Concert t-shirts were thee norm. Bell bottoms. ALWAYS stoned. I loved to wake and bake! Oh-well. I sure do miss the days.
I would still do it if I wouldn't get in trouble/lose my job. A few friends of mine still do.

.............you are freakin out....man...man..man...an..an.n.n.n


I've never called reefer 420....In my college years we were known to indulge around 4:20 pm...and on april 20th we'd have a big party....but never called the herb itself 420.....

funny thing i learned but most of you probably know.....hops is something like the sister plant to marijuana....least thats what they're preaching at the Magic Hat Brewery.
