It would make more sense to have Pi Day be the day after 4-20. No one is gonna care if it's 3-14, or not.

Not long before the unions come in and we see a resurgence of the Pinto.

You can order some online today!

As the economy transitions from cash crops to hash crops.

"Just a little off the top and sides, please."

Wait! We AREN"T talking about barbers?

I assume graduating barber school makes you a good trimmer.

I thought 4-20 was the tax freedom day date. (Back on geezer bus....)

Going to be chill and groovy all day today I am. . Well maybe not all day. Might just settle for a teensy tiny portion of the day. Peace and love.

Latest poll: pot legalization supported 61-33%. (Apparently, 6% were too stoned to answer.) Medical marijuana approval is at 88%. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/support-for-marijuana-legalization-at-all-time-high/

Be careful what you smoke today.

When they unionize, contrary to Mr. Tomato's mistaken opinion, productivity will rise by at least 35%, as the workers would be protected both from bad managers as well as bad dope.

A friend of mine has a rather worthless nephew who decided his future was in the cannabis industry. He left his mom's basement and moved to Colorado, to work as a "bud trimmer".

He moved back home a week later, after he realized the growers only wanted to pay him with product, not cash.

Mr. Tomato has a well thought out point he made. Migrant worker marijuana trimmers should receive 95% of their pay just because they are in the union. Makes no difference if they work or not. That's how Ford was able to mass produce the Pinto. With union skilled marijuana trimmers who wouldn't give an inch and wrecked the company as well as the entire city.

Pinto goes on the Worst list, but not because it was a particularly bad car — not particularly — but because it had a rather volatile nature. The car tended to erupt in flame in rear-end collisions. The Pinto is at the end of one of autodom's most notorious paper trails, the Ford Pinto memo , which ruthlessly calculates the cost of reinforcing the rear end ($121 million) versus the potential payout to victims ($50 million). Conclusion? Let 'em burn.

I'd look for the rotten tomato, first. They are much easier to spot. Connecting a badly designed car to Union workers? Give us a break, guy. Whatever you're on, cut the dose!
