I realize I’m getting this to print on April 21, but that’s just the way it goes when you celebrate April 20.
You know… 420.
A cat counterculture holiday.
A day to gather and enjoy Nepeta cataria.
Cats around the world plan time to indulge in a little Meowie Wowie on this day. I indulge often and generously.
I want everyone to know that I have a prescription for catnip from a licensed veterinarian, and Thing One and Thing Two obtain my product from a legal dispensary. I have a documented health issue that is best treated with medicinal catnip. I am not advocating any illegal activity.
My favorite way to get a little nepetalactone is to just do up some unprocessed weed. There’s nothing like a good roll in your stash. I’m fond of catnip consumables and have many accessories laced with dank kitty ganja. A pile of dried leaves results in hours of pleasure.
My home is very 420 friendly, with multiple baggies in the house at any given time. I would like Thing One and Thing Two to work on some home grown, but they are concerned about the neighbors helping themselves to our stash. I think our basement would be the perfect place for some grow-lights.
Where does the term “420″ come from in the catnip subculture, you ask?
A group of very cool cats in the 70′s with a catnip garden liked to meet post-afternoon nap to enjoy some high times. They needed a code to slip away without the dog noticing, so they used the slang term “4:20″ to refer to their meeting time. The dog would need an hour or two to figure out what time the cats were going to party, so the kitties were always finished with their munchies before the dog caught on.
We honor those felines today by partying on.
Enjoy your 420, dude. Always use catnip in a responsible manner!
