My hart is boken! Howeverswill he make ends meat! Surely heswill end up on the streets in the gutter, (hopefully) a broken man.

I'm sure there are a few more people he can kill in his alleged historical books if he sets his pea-brain to it.

Everyone's always said that 420 was a police radio code about people smoking pot. It isn't. The story is quite interesting and goes back to 1971! Naturally there's lots of references to the Grateful Dead and the magazine High Society. Here's a pretty full telling from Huffington Post: www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/04/20/420-meaning-the-true-stor_n_543854.html

Myself, honestly, I've never indulged. Aside from having worked for a major police department for nine years (computer stuff, not a sworn position), I've had bad lungs all my life, and having pneumonia five times in seven months in 2009 really kinda actively discouraged smoking pot. If New Mexico ever legalizes it recreationally, which is projected to happen possibly within 5 years, I'll gladly try pot brownies, that'll probably be my avenue. And I could probably use it right now, I've been kinda hyper-stressed and depressed because of my utter lack of success in the job search area these days. But that is the way things go. And I refuse to adopt an alcohol habit! :-)

I do have an amusing second-hand 420 story for you. In Colorado, after they legalized marijuana for personal use, they had problems with people stealing the mile marker 420 sign from I-25. So they changed the sign to mile marker 419.9. Surveyors, satellites, geographic surveys, all that. Just to keep people from stealing a stupid traffic sign.
