In a bit of a break from the tonnage of #SpaceLettuce we’re normally buried ‘neath, we delve into the mystical unknown and find out which celebrities have dabbled in the occult, cast spells, practice Wicca, or claim to be able to talk to demons. Being accused of being a witch would have serious repercussions in the past, but now witchiness is in. And it’s time for these celebrities to come out of the broom closet…full of chicken blood…
–In a hat tip to marijuana culture, lawmakers on Capitol Hill have officially reserved the number H.R. 420 for a bill that would dramatically change federal cannabis laws. 420, of course, is a special number for marijuana enthusiasts, who celebrate the plant extra hard every April 20. The new bill filed in the House on Wednesday by Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) is titled the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act. If passed, it would remove cannabis from the federal Controlled Substances Act.
“While the bill number may be a bit tongue in cheek, the issue is very serious. Our federal marijuana laws are outdated, out of touch and have negatively impacted countless lives,” Blumenauer said in a press release. “Congress cannot continue to be out of touch with a movement that a growing majority of Americans support. It’s time to end this senseless prohibition.”
This isn’t the first time that 420 has worked its way into official legislative numbering.
California’s first effort to create statewide medical cannabis regulations was through a bill numbered SB 420 in 2003.
In 2017, a Rhode Island senator filed a marijuana legalization bill given the designation of S 420.
–Roads of the future could be lit by glowing trees instead of streetlamps, thanks to a breakthrough in creating bioluminescent plants. Experts created a watercress plant which caused it to glow for nearly four hours and gave off enough light to illuminate a book. “Dude, is that tree glowing??”

When you or I indulge a bit heavily in cannabinoidistic vocabulation, we might get a few laughs.
