Today is the twentieth of April, a day that, for some, marks a period of unwieldy cannabis celebration. It other words, it's 4/20, dude.
Today is also a day where folks ditch work to convene upon Hippie Hill for a party wherein they beat drums, display questionable fashion sense, and take us back to a groovier time.
An estimated 15,000 are expected to show up at the annual (and unofficial) event. According to Associated Press, "The unsanctioned event costs the city between $80,000 and $100,000 per year because agencies are called in to help ensure safety, control heavy traffic and collect trash. Crews have cleaned up more than 5 tons of trash in previous years."
And with that, here are a few THC-laced scenes from this afternoon's 4/20 party on Hippie Hill — images that will make you envious you're not there or happy that you're stuck at work.
