It’s 4/20: Do You Think Marijuana Should be Legal?
As counterculture supporters around the country rally for legalization, we want to hear your thoughts on the subject.
While the origins of the 420 movement are murky, its message is clear: supporters want to see the legalization of marijuana.
In recognition of today’s observations that are taking place from California and Colorado to New York and in many points in between, we’d like to hear from you New Port Richey.
Do you think pot use should be legal in America?
The 420 observation, which takes place on April 20 each year, is one that’s been going on for decades, according to the Huffington Post. Even so, its origins are largely unknown.
“Its use as code for marijuana spread among California pot users in the 1960s and spread nationwide among followers of the Grateful Dead.
Like most counterculture slang, theories abound on its origin. Some say it was once police code in Southern California to denote marijuana use (probably an urban legend). It was a title number for a 2003 California bill about medical marijuana, an irony fully intended.”
So, what do you think? Should marijuana be legalized or should it stay on America’s banned list?
