I know this is, basically blasphemy to the stoner world, but has anyone else noticed its gotten completely mainstream?

I see it everywhere. On fucking plates for God's sake...

It has merely become a marketing figure.

And a way for people to remain "incognito" about their smoking, although everyone knows what it means.

Put 420 on it and people know you smoke. Put 420 in your screenname and people know you smoke.

I just see it EVERYWHERE! Its getting to be an eye sore and you start to realize everyone sporting a 420 something or other, has just started smoking or wants to tell the world.

Its just too mainstream now. Too many "tools" have soiled the name. And by tools, i mean companies and just new tokers that can ruin the image of a stoner.


Disclaimer: This doesnt apply to anyone on the City. Since being a part of Grasscity already means you smoke, i dont give a rats ass what you put as your name or siggy. Im talking about the outside world. The yard next door, ya dig?:)

I think of it as being on the same level as the anarchy circle-A symbol that everyone was crazy about a few years back.

I still refuse to drink Coronos on May 5th...

And Cinqo Di Mayo is a legit holiday. At least in Mexico. 420 was a cool concept until the World got a hold of it and kids who were 12-15 would sit there and write 420 on everything. You cant go to my city's park anymore without seeing 420 everywhere. You cant walk down a street without seeing 420 everywhere.

It gives us guys (and girls) a bad name. We enjoy pot for the spirituality and effects on the mind and body. The enjoy pot as an "illegal substance" and find themselves to have become quite the rebels due to their participation.

If it was as chill and controlled as Cinqo Di Mayo, i would have no problem. But im so sick of those three damn numbers... 4.2.0.

I dunno. Im with you in the fact that its kinda played out. but you gotta remember the kids writing the 420 are probably your typical 15 year old kid who asks his friends if he looks high before he gets picked up by his mom.


but look at the culture as a whole, i mean Im not one to diss names...but a jamacian themed icon and name (even though its a great movie!) is typical as well. regardless if you are jamacian.


i think the best thing to do is to let it go and smoke a bowl :hello:

I agree with you CR, people should smoke for the right reason - smoking simply because it's "naughty" is so lame. They are precisely the smokers who give up when they hit 30 and then spend the rest of their lives telling everyone how evil weed is and how the government is justified in locking up anyone who even experiments with it. Boring, shallow people :(

You gotta realize what im saying man. I have no anger towards new smokers. AT ALL.

But when they take it to the extent of writing 420 everywhere and giving it a bad name, it gets annoying. Plus, herb should be used at an age of somewhat maturity. Im pretty sure, no matter how much you love "Miller Time", if a bunch of 13-15 year olds would get drunk and write "Miller Time" on everything, it would piss you off.

And, the other part of my thread was companies putting 420 on something to get it sold. I honestly will never buy anything with "420" on it. Its now a marketing agent used to sell to people with the preconceived notion of being cool and conforming to the pot smoking population.

Can we please deviate from the idea that "newbs are gay" and just debate (or agree) on the subject at hand. Smoke at whatever age you like, but keep your vandalism seperate from such the Holy Herb. And by writing a number associated with such things, it gives everyone else that doesnt smoke a reason to hate it.

That should clear the runway of anymore newb bashing arguments.

Im not bashing anyone. Please.

I wrote my last post while you were writing yours so disregard it as a defensive statement.

And my name... Well i didnt plan on staying here at Grasscity for more than a few days. I picked some name that, honestly at the time, meant only a funny movie with a bunch of Jamaicans trying to set up a bobsled team. The concept of that movie was funny, not the nationality of them.

it could have been a bunch of Eskimos trying to start a surfing team and i would have put the title as my name here. Hahaha, shows how simple minded i am.:hello:
