It’s April 20th, which means that plenty of idiots are out there saying, “Huh huh huh… 4/20, dude.” I’ve got nothing against marijuana use, and I’m all for its legalization, but I’m a little too old to get excited about an arrangement of numbers on the calendar. It’s like Pi Day: no one but mathletes should make a big deal out of it.
However, since this is the Internet, I don’t stem the tides, I swim with them. So here’s a PSA from the ’90s in which the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles help young children say no to fourth-grade drug dealers. This is how ALL young people are introduced to marijuana, of course: confronted at their locker by older kids who dare them to try a joint in the hallway between classes. It’s almost TOO subtle.
