Hi everyone and Happy Friday! This week has been pretty long for me! I’m so happy the weekend is finally here! Today I’m taking you back to a 90’s classic I’m still listening to in 2017! “Friday” was one of my favorite movies growing up. I’m still an Ice Cube and Dr. Dre fan these days. Since Thursday was the 420 holiday in North America, I thought this would be a good song to share for the occasion. I apologize, I’m a day late on this post. “Friday” is a movie about friendship and marijuana consumption. It has lots of jokes in it. People celebrate by consuming marijuana at 4:20 p.m. on April 20. The holiday was started by five California high school students in 1971. 420 was a code term used to signify marijuana consumption at that time. It was used so that authorities didn’t know the meaning of it. Although marijuana consumption is illegal in many states, it’s currently legal in eight states and Washington D.C. For more info. about 420, you can check out this article by MSN right here. Although the majority of marijuana consumption is illegal in Texas, El Paso is hosting their own 420 Fest through Saturday. Organizers want to educate the public on consuming medicinal marijuana and proposed marijuana laws. Medicinal marijuana is said to help alleviate cancer, epilepsy, post traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, menstrual cramps and many other ailments. More than 30 local bands and other performances are expected at the event. You can check out the story I did for What’s Up Weekly here. Have a great weekend everyone and I’ll see you soon!
