Holy Smoke

By +Ian C

Today, many people are celebrating one of the biggest days in the Christian calendar. The first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox, is also known as Easter Sunday, the day that Jesus rose again. However many people are also celebrating for another reason since today is 4/20, the biggest day in the calendar of pot smokers.

While it was not uncommon for people to get stoned back in the time of Jesus, it did have a slightly different meaning. Getting stoned was a punishment (and still is in some Muslim countries)  reserved predominantly for those guilty of adultery, sodomy or homosexuality, or possibly all three.

So today as you and your family get together to celebrate Easter, keep an eye on the kid's candy because cousin Jeff might just have the munchies a little after 4:20. 

And on the bright side, at least there won't be any leftovers, no matter how bad the cooking.
