The Story of the 420 BREXIT
This day has gone from marijuana straight in to surrealism without any Pink Floyd in between.
By Kate M.
Today, we are in Sweet England, in some of the rarest circumstances such as Brexit. And we are here to talk about something more interesting for us : 420 in the UK and the state of weed in the british nation. Despite the best efforts of Howard Marx, Professor David Nutt and Zane from One Direction. The sweet hemp leaf remains banned throughout much of the western world. Let’s break it down a little bit so all the readers can understand the context of the Mary Jane Complex. This piece is dissecting a fun journey and being surrounded by a police force.
It was Labour ( Left wing which is a little bit weird but straight on ) who first upgraded it to a class B drug, the Tories have kept it on the naughty step ( surprising ) and even the Lib Dems feel we should only get wavy for medicinal purposes. So we headed to Hyde Park for Britain’s 4/20 celebrations. In the run up to the election, it feels especially political. The police are getting some early numbers on the scoreboard here. We’re not saying that drugs are safe we’re not advocating a free-for-all, we’re not saying tomorrow that all drugs should be legal and that everyone should take them, and all the rest of it, no! What we’re saying is that some drugs are safer than others, and that should obviously be reflected in the law. I think people decide on law, and by the amount of people that are in Hyde Park, supporting the cause, it is surprising that it hasn’t not been legalized yet. As we are talking with a bunch of friends, the police were scrutinizing all the groups, they’re on the lookout for law breaking marijuana smokers. I could point them towards a few over there, but I’m no snitch.
“What I would recommend to her is to make her smoking experience a lot better by try hitting it through a bong, hitting it through a bong is so much smoother on the flow and doesn’t kill you off as much.”
Let’s get back to some 420 politics :UKIP and the Greens are the only two parties who are pro-marijuana in the polls. Natalie Bennet said that she found marijuana quite unpleasant. What would you recommend to make her experience more pleasant? What I would recommend to her is to make her smoking experience a lot better by try hitting it through a bong, hitting it through a bong is so much smoother on the flow and doesn’t kill you off as much.
I have to admit to feeling a little bit hazy. I’m not sure if it is all the marijuana, I did take a few evening primrose oil tablets this morning, it might be that, but, it’s now coming up to a quarter past 4 and, well, you could cut the tension with a hot knife.
This day has gone from marijuana straight in to surrealism without any Pink Floyd in between. We’ve just heard that it is 4/20 now and I am about to be surrounded by hundreds of law breakers, if not thousands. One’s cheese and one’s haze.
Well the 4/20 protests are drawing to their natural stoned conclusion just behind me with the police mopping up. It’s been a very fun day.
You could imagine that with 3 of the 5 major parties now in favour of some kind of marijuana legalization,but it does seem that the green tide is turning in our new multi-party system.
