A Huge Turn Out for 420 Day on Hippie Hill in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

I’m not sure what it looked like at 420 Day Street in Noe Valley today, but I do know what it looked like on and around Hippie Hill in Golden Gate Park. It was packed for 4/20 Day celebrations.

Thousands turned out to consume marijuana, causing traffic gridlock* in the east end of the park.** (Hippies have lots of cars – did not know that.)

*Perhaps MUNI could operate a special “420 service” from Civic Center BART  every April 20th, maybe charge $4.20 one-way?

**A traffic light at the foot of eastbound JFK Drive at Kezar Drive certainly is called for, but doctrine mandates just having a stop sign.
