Happy Friday — and welcome to 2012's rendition of the date 4/20! Even if you're not a part of America's cult cannabis movement, you'll still need to figure out what to eat for dinner tonight. Looking for something to munch on? Here are a few smoky, spicy recipes to light up your day.
In honor of Four Twenty, CollegeHumor has compiled a flowchart to help the day's hungry hordes decide what to eat when they've got the late night munchies. It's pretty funny, although I must argue that they've left some pretty crucial late-night snacks off the list: tacos, Chinese food, Thai noodles . . . the list goes on.
Nighttime grazing is the bane of my existence. Although I don't usually have them, I do love jalapeño poppers — or anything salty and creamy, like nachos, for that matter. Last night it was cheese and crackers. What's your favorite before-bed snack?
As people around the country light up for 420, the annual marijuana holiday, I'm sure a lot of them will have deep, philosophical discussions about our drug laws, man. As a society we have chosen to outlaw marijuana, yet we allow (and encourage) people to drink alcohol. Both substances can be fun in moderation, and both come with risks when abused.
Still, while marijuana might be technically illegal, many people don't really consider indulging in pot a big deal. Even President Obama admitted to smoking pot and inhaling . . . frequently. What about you?
