Noch ein Nachtrag zu Cannabis (weibliche Hanfpflanze) und dem gestrigen Tag.
Jedes Jahr treffen sich immer am 20. April tausende Marihuana-Anhänger in Kanadas
Metropolen. 2010 waren es in Vancouver ca. 10.000, 2011 ca. 15.000 und in diesem Jahr Edit erhöht auf 40.000 Marihuana-Anhänger, die sich in Vancouver fröhlich rauchend versammelt haben.

As 4:20 p.m. approached on Thursday, thousands of people at Vancouver's Sunset Beach were asked to sit down to avoid chaos while 4/20 event organizers began throwing 10 pounds of free marijuana — hundreds of pre-rolled joints — into the crowd.
It's part of the annual ritual, followed by a countdown, giant cheer, and a massive cloud of smoke rising above the huge crowd, as the pot enthusiasts light their joints, pipes, bongs and power up their vaporizors.
"I think there's a heck of a lot of people here," said head organizer, Jeremiah Vandermeer on Thursday.
Police reported that the crowd appeared to be larger than last year's event, estimating attendance around 35,000 people.
Large crowds and a massive cloud of smoke, Vancouver 4/20 bigger than ever
Police estimate 35K marijuana enthusiasts turned up at the annual event Thursday
Eine Freundin erklärte es mir seinerzeit am 20. April 2011 so:
.....I cannot completely research the meaning of 4/20 but each day at twenty after four the solidarity Marijuana Smoker’s and believers in the medicinal value of the THC drug will have a drug cigarette.
It comes from the hippie days but I am an almost hippie and can say I did not know it till the last two or three years this habit.
So there is a history why this time this is what I do not know.
However it is part of April 20th, On the 20th day of the fourth month a big protest is held by the pot smokers. this is a Canada wide protest but nowhere is it celebrated as in BC because of all world places the "BC Bud is the best". You may have heard this. One time I was talking to someone in the United States because they saw I was in BC and wanted to know about how I smoke it.
People assume you do if you are from BC.
Anyways last year in Vancouver, the biggest protest 10 thousand at the protest and this year there were 15000 so it is getting bigger.
It is getting bigger because our prime minister, Harper is signing a deal with the United States to show them who the Marijuana criminals are and other information about the Canadians who cross the border.
These people want to make this drug legal.
So they stand and walk in the streets by the Vancouver Art Centre, all of them together and they will smoke the drug openly. There are too many to arrest so if there is peace (and these users are peaceful) they will only stand and watch and cannot get them on the illegality on this day.
Even the workers of the ferries make space for these people to smoke pot on just that day.
If the police would go to arrest someone they must say "help I am being arrested" and all the others will line up and hug the smoker and not let the police take them.
It is the daytime people who think the drug should be legal will stand in protest together so it cannot cause grief and will be open int he world.
The green party agrees with this and believes that this drug is not harmful and is often helpful and should not be illegal.
The illegal costs the court system for each offender and puts peaceful people in jail they say.
But I did not know till yesterday so much about it and how many people smoke it I was surprised.
This puts us in trouble with the States.
Ich weiß nicht, ob diese 13 bekifften Bären dieses Jahr auch mit dabei waren.
