4E Celebrates 4/20

4.20

This Monday is a very important day for many DC residents: April 20, or 4/20, is a day of celebration for the flowering plant known as cannabis.

Although marijuana use is not legal for DC residents under 21 or anywhere on Georgetown’s campus, 4E has come up with several ways for you to partake in the 4/20 festivities without breaking the law or suffering from the terrible, and probably fatal, medical effects of marijuana use.

1. Get breakfast at First Bake at Farmers Fishers Bakers to get your 4/20 started off right. Enjoy a pot of coffee with your cinnamon rolls.

2. Grab a cupcake from Baked & Wired – they might even have cannabis-shaped cookies on hand. Eat your dessert on the grass by the waterfront.

3. Treat yourself to falafel from Amsterdam Falafelshop in Adam’s Morgan or on 14th Street. To celebrate Amsterdam’s status as the weed capitol of the world, the falafel joint is featuring a special 4/20 pairing menu so that you can get the perfect pita combination to complement your strain of choice.

4. Enjoy a crepe from Muncheez on Wisconsin. Their nutella crepe is dope.

5.Devour a scoop of Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked, or read up on one of their new, rumored weed-enhanced flavors. Not to be blunt, but Half Baked is definitely the best flavor year-round.

 Happy 4/20 Hoyas! We hope it’s a high point in your year.

Before You Throw a Reefer Rager…

hoyaPOTWARNINGIn case you missed the news this past week, marijuana was legalized on Tuesday when D.C. voters approved Initiative 71 by 69 percent.

But take warning … Before you throw a massive Reefer Madness party this weekend and frolic around Healy Lawn, know that this is just the first step toward total legalization.

As such, marijuana use in D.C. has the following stipulations:

1. Initiative 71 will not go into effect until it clears a 60-day Congressional review period.

2. If Congress does not reject Initiative 71, it will only go into effect until February or early March — just in time for April 20. Coincidence? I think not.

3. The law only applies to people over the age of 21. Too bad, underclassmen.

4. You can possess marijuana if it’s under two ounces. Backpack side pockets are finally useful!

5. Sales of marijuana are still prohibited, so please keep that Dean’s office job.

6. You can cultivate as many as six plants, as long as only three or fewer are mature. Good thing campus housing can only hold about five total.

7. And most restricting of all, smoking on campus is still prohibited. This means you will never be able to legally hug John Carroll while high or use the beakers in the biology lab as bongs (which, considering what those beakers normally contain, would be a pretty bad idea).

So hold tight Hoyas, be safe and keep your eyes on the news, because next semester might just get a whooleee lottt greeenerrrr.
