Ah, 4/20. A stoner’s dream, a pothead’s paradise. Call it what you want, but with the growing number of states steadily passing laws allowing for medical marijuana and others going full-throttle and legalizing it for recreational use, April 20 has renewed meaning.
Thus, despite the usual array of madness that’s going on in the world today, many folks are kicking back, lighting up and chillin’ in honor of the day where it’s publicly acceptable to acknowledge and embrace their inner-stoner.
Add to that that Sen. Charles Schumer announced in a tweet (on 4/20 no less!) that he plans on introducing legislation to decriminalize marijuana on the federal level, stoners have an extra reason to celebrate.
THREAD: It’s official. Today, I am formally announcing my plan to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level. It’s time we allow states, once and for all, to have the power to decide what works best for them.

Thus, it should come as no surprise that folks like OG stoners Cheech and Chong and Snoop Dogg are celebrating the day. Even those who aren’t — like “Law & Order” star/rapper Ice-T — chimed in voicing their support.

Happy “420” day!
