On 4/20, the unofficial holiday for marijuana lovers, Willie Nelson, the patron saint of cannabis, urged president Joe Biden to declare April 20 a high holy holiday.
Granted, Willie was probably high when he made that pronouncement, but then again, he’s high most of the time.
Willie has been promoting the benefits of the magical herb for decades, and America is finally coming around to his point of view. Polls show that most Americans favor legalizing weed, and recreational use of marijuana is now legal in 17 states.
I hope Biden, 78, takes the advice of his elder who’s 87, and comes out in favor of legalizing dope. On the federal level marijuana remains illegal, it’s high time for Congress to legalize the recreational use of pot.
Let’s heed the prophetic words of the Pontiff of Pot:
“I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?”
