    Happy four-twenty: it’s not hitler’s birthday 

    420

    From SF Chronicle

    “(04-18) 19:15 PDT DALY CITY — People have been toking up in the Cow Palace parking lot for more than 50 years.

    This was the first time it was legal.

    The International Cannabis and Hemp Expo, the first trade show in the United States to allow on-site pot smoking, attracted an estimated 15,000 enthusiasts to Daly City over the weekend. They talked bud, sold products ranging from a $500 water bong to a $19,500 mobile grow house, and discussed how efforts to legalize marijuana would impact their livelihoods.

    “We’re exercising our rights as patients to peacefully gather,” said Bob Katzman, chief operating officer of the expo, as he stood near the designated puffing area. “We’re here to talk about changing some of the existing laws, but we’re not here to break the law.”

    Katzman said it took organizers four years to negotiate a permit with a venue that would allow marijuana consumption. It wasn’t possible, he said, until a “massive change in the political climate.”

    That climate is set to be tested in November, when an initiative that would legalize marijuana is to be decided by California voters. Now, marijuana is available only to those with a medicinal use card……”

      i like illegal pot. i like that it’s unbranded and ungoverned. i think peeps are loosing respect for the plant. i think cannabis is a special plant and the energy around the plant will shift when it’s a gas station pickup on a lousy day. but aside from that, i love you guys 🙂 wink wink

      true. corporate pot does not sounds like a good thing. marlboro green spliff brand ciggies….

      what i hate is that there were 847,863 marijuanna related arrests in the USA last year and in 2007 it is estimated there were be between 143 and 190 million persons using the ganja. Any of them could have been arrested for using medicine. many of us as well.
      i don’t like all the peeps in jail… would rather my brothers and sisters were out in the world living.

      i would also like some local, organic pot i could buy from my hommie at the pot farmers market down the street form my house. 🙂

      what if we were actually doing something with these 10000+ people besides absolutely nothing?

      lots of energy, lots of love, not that much initiative

      lets make something real happen next year

      funny you should mention that …when I showed this to some friends one of them said it reminded them of the south park episode where they have the hippy jam fest. “Is there anything more selfish than listening to music and smoking pot all day” I think is the line

      When I think of ideas…I keep thinking of a stage (musicians to guide the collective consciousness there)

      but when trying to get more creative with it… I guess you could collect an object from everyone who was willing then building something out of it. I can’t for sure say where this would lead. But I bet a lot of trash is left behind at that :/

      Another thought is to pass a singular object around the entire crowd and everyone could write on it/add on to it ….what better place to pass around a signatures thingy for anti pot laws or you could walk around getting signatures instead of passing it.

      More ideas guys? 🙂 Max is right…I do however keep going back to a stage or music or something to really guide the whole collective that is there… it’s tried and true, it’s embedded in our genetics..music and dance are BRILLIANTLY BEAUTIFUL…art art art
