Meet Old Hippie On 4/20

I will be tripping through the Bay Area on Saturday for the nearest thing our culture has to a true “high holiday”…4/20!

At around noon, I’ll be at the psychedelic flea market being held at the Oakland Marriott Civic Center in downtown Oakland. It’s part of a serious but cool MAPS conference, and admission to the marketplace is free (I don’t think they’re selling drugs though).

At about 3 PM, I’ll be at Hippie Hill, the only sane destination for 4/20 if you don’t happen to be in either Denver or Seattle, where some really insane stuff will be hopefully happening (I’m talking about good, clean fun insane stuff). When I get settled, I plan to tweet my exact location. By 4:20 fo sho! But just look for someone approximately dressed like this:

I’m hoping to bring Felicity too! Anyway, nugs and hugs and I’d love to meet you if you’re in the area!

About Old Hippie Old Hippie is a father of two boys and thankfully living in California where all this kind of thing is legal. He started smoking marijuana in 1967 in high school, experimented with mind-expanding drugs of all kinds, and then straightened out 15 or so years later to become an airplane pilot. After being diagnosed with depression in 2000, he lost his job and most of the following decade to prescription medications (such as antidepressants) which sapped his energy and will. Finally, a chance conversation with a friend led to a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana (MMJ). This changed his entire life, health, and outlook for the better. is his continuing story. It’s also his way to provide experienced advice on using medical marijuana effectively and responsibly, as well as advocacy, activism, and support for others. Old Hippie teaches about safe use of cannabis edibles, Canna Caps, vaporizers, dosing, and even microdosing.


I really wish I could meet you, but it’s a little far from Ohio. Have fun, be safe.

Hugs and Nugs right back to you!

OH: Are you familiar with Discordianism at all? If not check it out, it’s a peachy keen “religion” and 4/20 is our equivalent to Christmas. Save Your Seeds. Hail Eris!

I looked this up on Wikipedia and found this gem:

…the Principia Discordia notes a debate over whether the “gold” described was “metallic gold or Acapulco.”

Nugs and hugs!
