Happy 420 to you, were you one of the 20,000 or so people that made it down to Sunset Beach today? My wife and I made it for about an hour between 2:00 and 3:00.
As you can see it wasn’t TOTALLY slammed yet, but there were throngs of people enjoying some tunes and a whole lot of THC. I wish I could remember the name of the band playing behind us in the pic, they were outstanding!! *FYI my lack of memory is not because I partook in the festivities. Truth be told I actually only get on that level once in a very blue moon. But I am all about people having personal freedoms and being able to make our own decisions as long as they’re not harming others, so I support the cause. No, this lack of memory is from all of the blazing that I did when I was a kid. There was a time when I spent every cent I could on some good buds, but then somehow it started turning on me, and I would get extremely paranoid and anti-social. It took a good 5 years of being scared before I finally figured out that I should probably stop blazing*
Annnnnyway, that got a little off track didn’t it? We only stayed for about an hour, and when we left, there were hordes of people rushing down to Sunset Beach to try to make it in time for the 4:20 joint giveaway and light up. It was slightly more packed than when we were there, take a look at this:
For the record, Sunset Beach was a far better venue for the protest/rally/party/concert, simply because there was more room and being on a beach is always a good thing right?
I will say that pot subculture and the dedication to it is completely lost on me. Some people just LIVE to celebrate weed, and that to me is silly. Imagine a booze rally with speakers talking about how dedicated to the cause of drinking we were? And don’t worry, I understand the effects of booze and weed are completely different, save the lecture. I just can’t wrap my head around how something like smoking weed can define the very core of so many people. However as I said before, for some of us 420 is about more than just smoking. It’s about not getting bullied around because you’re acting like an adult and making your own personal choices.
