Let me just say that if you get all worked up fretting about the trash that’s going to be left after the hippies leave after 4:20 PM, then THERE”S SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOU.

Closing with your 411 on 420 in the 415:

Does SFGov Know What It’s Doing? Here’s the 420 Day Street Notice Still Blazing Away 24 Hours After 420 Day

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

If you can’t take the sign away yet, SFGov, why not just turn it off and get it out of the way, would that be too hard?

Or is it still blinking today on 4/22? We’ll see…

Wow, SFGov Overreacts to 420 Day This Year – Haight Ashbury Shut Down for This? – “Event at Golden Gate Park”

Sunday, April 20th, 2014

Well, here it is, the result of millionaire homeowners in the 94117 pressuring not-so-bright Supervisor London Breed into pressuring the SFPD and SFMTA and the rest of the SFGov alphabet soup into treating annual 420 Day at Sharon Meadow like a big corporate-sponsored event:

Katie Utehs ‏@katieutehs:#420 gathering in @GoldenGatePark went from being unorganized to partially organized & I’m not sure which is worse.”

Ouch!

Here’s the event, officially:

Event at Golden Gate Park – On Sunday, a large group of participants is expected to gather at Sharon Meadows [sic] inside Golden Gate Park.

The following street closures will be required by the San Francisco Police Department from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.:

Kezar Drive between Lincoln Way and John F. Kennedy Drive
Stanyan between Frederick and Oak streets
Haight Street between Masonic and Stanyan streets

During the street closures, Muni buses will be allowed through the closed streets. Personnel from SFPD and SFMTA will determine to re-route Muni buses as crowds grow. Muni bus re-routes will be expected to begin at approximately 3 p.m.

Heavy pedestrian traffic is expected around the event area.”

Here are a few of the closed streets:

Stanyan:

Haight:

Ashbury:

And so of course Fell turned into a parking lot, what with Kezar, Gateway to the Sunsets, shut down (for some reason) this year:

Sometimes I just don’t know…

What’s This, Kezar Drive, Gateway to the Inner Sunset and Beyond, is Going to be Shut Down for 420 Day on Sunday?

Friday, April 18th, 2014

All right, when I first saw this sign the other day, I didn’t  understand it – I was like “KEZAR CLOSED,” huh?

But now I understand, I think.

I think the Sunsets are going to be cut off from San Francisco due to the big 420 Day gathering this Easter Sunday 2014.

The sign says to “… USE … FULTON.”

Which, like, I don’t care, but isn’t this going to mess up traffic?

Just asking.

(And oh, just so you know, the group of people who just love, love, love cars the most are hippies, believe it or not. You’ll see.)

Wow, San Francisco’s Annual 420 Day in Golden Gate Park is Now Officially a Thing – Check This Sign

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

You see, the “event” is you and your buds smoking buds in Golden Gate Park on 420 Day.

Our local government would just love to fee this “event” out of existence, ala the former Jimmy’s Old Car Picnic, but there’s no entity to tax or fee or fine – poor SFGov!

(Oh, “Kezar” will be “closed?” IDK what that means. I guess I’ll find out on Sunday.)

Anyway, this event is now official, just saying.

Don’t You Wish You Had Your Own State-Approved Smoking Tent, Like Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger Used To Have?

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

I bet you’d love to have your very own smoking tent. One that’s large enough to be seen from outer space, right?

Well then you should envy California Governor Arnold Schwazenegger ’cause this beige smoking tent used to be all his.

As seen from the second floor of Sacramento’s Capitol Building:

Best of all, it was excluded from California’s new anti-smoking laws because, well, just because.

And if there was the occasional flooding in our historic capitol due to all the fake plastic grass that was put down, well, that was all right as well.

This was the bird’s eye view:

Happy smoking, Arnie!

Yes, whether it be cigars…

Uh, San Francisco Chronicle Outdoors Writer Tom Stienstra, the Person Damaging Your Reputation the Most is You Yourself

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

Let’s review.

Now let’s add in the news from yesterday, specifically this.

Your position on this matter is incoherent.

Hey, here’s what the Chronicle itself had to say back in 2010:

Chronicle outdoors writer Tom Stienstra and his wife were arrested at their Northern California home on suspicion of possession of marijuana for sale, and later released with no charges filed pending an investigation, officials said.

Siskiyou County sheriff’s spokeswoman Susan Gravenkamp said deputies found “a sophisticated marijuana cultivation operation in the barn” at Stienstra’s home in Weed, a small town 30 miles south of Yreka, when they searched it March 25.

Authorities seized 60 marijuana plants, 11.1 pounds of processed marijuana, scales, packaging materials and other paraphernalia from the barn and the home, Gravenkamp said.”

Are you going to sue the Chronicle too?

Weren’t you actually arrested “on suspicion of possession of marijuana for sale?” I mean, that’s the question, right?

And boy, if somebody turned me down for a vacation rental you know what I’d do? I’d find another vacation rental and everything would be rosy.

Hey, here’s an idea. Why not just move on and quit while you’re behind?

What, San Francisco Chronicle Outdoors Columnist Tom Stienstra Sued a Blogger for Defamation re: Pot Bust? Yes

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

This post from 2010 is what Tom Stienstra was mad about:

“OUTDOOR WRITER TOM STIENSTRA BUSTED FOR MARIJUANA CULTIVATION IN WEED (OR, OOOPS!) APRIL 2, 2010, by TOM CHANDLER

So writer Tom Stienstra sued writer Tom Chandler for defamation just last year.

And then Tom Stienstra lost.

See?

OMG.

So, Tom Stienstra, you’re going to have to better than this.
