The official orders have been blunt: cannabis lovers are to stay away from Golden Gate Park on 4/20. But the question remains — will all pot enthusiasts heed the directive?
The cancellation of 4/20 festivities at Robin Williams Meadow renders this year’s high holiday perhaps the suckiest 4/20 ever. But at least you’re safe, and we strongly encourage you to stay home and enjoy some of the many 4/20 livestreams and online smokeouts accessible online.
Meanwhile, SF Weekly will keep an eye on Hippie Hill and report back to you, as to whether people are indeed following orders from the man — who, by the way, is only trying to save your lungs from the ravages of a serious virus, so please stay at home and cool it with the smash-down-Babylon rhetoric for a minute.
We promise to diligently report on any any chronic problems or sticky situations as SFPD and Rec & Parks rangers do their best to enforce the closure of the meadow. So check back for updates from me, Joe Kukura, or as all you out there in Twitterland know me, @ExercisingDrunk.
