Prompted by “420 Games Aim to Fight Stoner Stereotypes”: http://www.hightimes.com/read/420-games-aim-fight-stoner-stereotypes
Students, accountants, businessmen, housewives and many others in green T-shirts and all wearing the number 420 raced Saturday to change the stereotypical images of marijuana smokers as lazy and lethargic stoners who binge on junk food.
That’s a wonderful idea. I’ve been contemplating starting a walk to raise cannabis awareness (including using the event to help people distinguish between use and abuse to prevent the latter).
After my first Walk to End Alzheimer’s next month (yeah, I’m a Walk virgin), which maxes out at three miles, I’ll be able to determine if a 4.20 mile Walk Against Dope (or such) would be fitting.
The overall idea of connecting cannabis with the popularity of athletic exercise (and health in general) is a solid and respectable one.
