It’s college students favorite holiday, and you don’t even get a two-week break with it. It’s the day where you can consume 5,000 calories and no one will tell you you’re a big gluttonous pig. It’s the day where if you sit on your couch in your pajamas all day, no one is asking any questions. It’s the best day of the year, it’s 4/20. 4/20 should be celebrated by all co-eds, if you’re a casual smoker or a true stoner, it’s a day of puffing and passing. But in college, smoking weed all day isn’t really that much of a stretch for most people. It’s basically as common as underage drinking. Sure it may be illegal, but that doesn’t stop anyone from indulging in a little late-night toke session. And who would want to miss out on the after party? They always have two things in common, drunk hook-ups and a dutchie. You’d have to be crazy to miss it for that dollar slice that tastes like cardboard. If this is your first 4/20 spent out of your parents house or it’s your last one at school, make it a good one. Plan ahead of time and be ready for an all-day smoke session. Here’s what you need in order to have the perfect 4/20.
Don’t be a fool and wait around until the morning of to get your most crucial supplies. Call up your shady dealer or friendly frat friend ahead of time, and secure the green. The worst feeling in all of April (besides the April Fools joke where your girlfriend told you she was pregnant) is being weed-less on the high holy day. So, check yourself before you wreck yourself and have it ready.
Another great idea when it comes to getting pot on 4/20 is having your buddies all throw into the 4/20 bag with you. That way, it’s not everyone throwing something in every time you pack a bong. And this way you won’t be disappointed at the end of the day when there’s nothing left in your bag. It’s 4/20, you’re supposed to smoke it all.
Papers and Paraphernalia
Make sure you are stocked up on ez-widers, games, and dutchies before you start the party. Buy them ahead of time in an assortment of sizes and flavors so you don’t have to on 4/20 stinking of pot with your eyes glazed over. If you’re not so much into rolling stuff, and you prefer bongs, bowls, or bubblers….make sure they are clean and ready for use. No one wants to hit your res-filled bong that you roommate may have thrown up in that one time.
Food (And Lots of It)
Having a stock pile of food on 4/20 is the best piece of advice I can give you. Don’t hold back and get Baked Lays or Sun Chips. Go for the XL bag of Cheetos and the white cheddar popcorn. And if you’re a baller, do yourself a favor and go buy Stouffer’s family size mac and cheese, now. Right now. It will feed you and your friends, and it’s fucking amazing. Also have on hand delivery menus and a variety of drinks. One of the best things about college is that everywhere delivers so take advantage.
A Safe Place
Celebrating 4/20 in your dorm room or in your first floor apartment might not be the best of ideas. You don’t want to ruin your high by worrying about cops all day and the prospect if they DO come they will take your beloved Illadelph. So find a safe place to go. Stay away from apartment buildings and anywhere on campus. Frats and houses off-campus are a good idea, there won’t be anyone sneaking around or sniffing you out.
A Good Attitude
Don’t come around on 4/20 acting paranoid and freaking out that you might be hallucinating from these headies. No one wants to deal with an amateur weed-smoker on the best day of the year, so if you can’t handle it: don’t make a scene, just leave. Get the hell out before you tell everyone you heard a knock on the door and you swear it was the cops. This is day for relaxation, watching South Park, and being so high you feel like your ears are bleeding. So chill out, have fun, and puff, puff, pass.
