GUMBY FORKES, Colorado -- The Venerable Bede tells us that the word Easter comes from the name Ēostre, a goddess of Anglo-Saxon paganism. By the seventh century, he wrote, feasts held in her honor during Ēostur-monath had been superseded by the Christian custom of Easter.
In the deep, dank underground of marijuana culture, however, the holiday takes on a more sinister significance. Intoxicated celebrants of the Pastafarian faith toke up bongs, joints, hookahs, vaporizers, and assorted other means of THC/Cannabinoid delivery in a salute to 420 Bunny.
Easter is being ushered in with a bong by a record 130 million Americans this year. Colorado hemp farmer and octogenarian Stew Klaytor can't be more enthusiastic.
