Today marked the first 4/20 since weed has been legal to use and sell recreationally in Denver, Colorado, and by the looks of it, it was exactly the utopia of Mr. Potato Head-shaped bongs, Nutella pancakes, and people with names like "Dina Compassion" that you'd imagine.

If you use the popular text-message service called Twitter, then you've surely seen an endless stream of messages each afternoon announcing the arrival of "420," or 4:20 p.m. This means people have begun smoking their marijuana. Yet "beer o'clock" does not come until 5 p.m.

Loud noises and running cops figure into every paranoid stoner's nightmares, but Denver got both in real life yesterday at their packed pot celebration.

Mandy Oaklander · 04/20/13 03:20PM

For some, 4/20 is just another day to get high. But for one hardcore trio in Canada, it requires days of preparation, huge amounts of melted butter, and Mrs. Fields-worthy kitchen skills. That's what 8,000 cookies require.

The 4/20 Weed Cloud That Ate Boulder, CO

Seth Abramovitch · 04/21/11 01:48AM

How did you celebrate 4/20? Well, you could have lit up a spliff the size of a Volkswagen Beetle and it still wouldn't have come close to what the pothead population of Boulder cooked up. Watch in amazement as a cloud of marijuana smoke steadily grows above a gathering of 4/20 celebrants. Then watch it grow denser and larger still, as coughs and beach balls bounce throughout crowd. The video cuts off before the unruly mob discusses raiding a nearby Costco for free samples, then gives up in a moment of weed-induced apathy. But it's still pretty awe-inspiring nonetheless.

"That, of course, after they sparked the weed they had come to smoke."

Hamilton Nolan · 04/21/08 02:24PM

Which is funnier: hippie college kids engaging in a weed smoking festival, or the local paper trying to cover that event in respectable language? You decide! In honor of 4/20, 10,000 kids at the University of Colorado hit the quad for a massive smoke-out, and the Boulder Daily Camera was on the scene to record all the magical high-ass quotes that spilled forth from the participants. Here is just one, from freshman Emily Benson: "We're at the starting point of a movement," she said. "This is a big part of the reason I applied here — for the weed atmosphere." Ha, yes you did! And there are so many more:

The Fabulous History of Ganja

ian spiegelman · 04/19/08 12:41PM

Tomorrow is 4/20, when dirty hippies, stoners, burnouts, and all of my friends celebrate their precious, precious weed. But how much do you really know about this deadly commie herb? Did you know that in 19th century Nepal it was harvested by naked dudes running through the flowering fields until they were all sticky and then they'd have the goo scraped from their naked nakedness to make hash? Well, did you?!

For days now, the most important site on the whole internets has been unavailable due to a server move. We speak, naturally, of I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER?, the number one hotspot for relaxing pictures of LOLcats.

To get us through this horrible gap in our LOLcat consumption, we've wasted most of the morning assembling our very own set of LOLgays. Mmm, Fridays.
