Dude, It’s 420! Celebrate and Watch a Movie!

Don’t fondle the water pipe!

In honor of  vipers, stoners, bong loaders, high rollers, reefer madmen and hemp honeys, marijuana activists, medical marijuana cooperatives and their attorneys, pursuit of happiness advocates, Tommy Chong, Paul McCartney, the late, great Robert Mitchum,  those who don’t think the government belongs in our bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens or medicine cabinets, and many more…

Today, 4/20 until 11:59 PM, the movie High: The True Tale of American Marijuana, which we hosted on Movie Night will be screening on-demand for free on the official website,

Easy snack recipe:

* 1 cup butter, plus more for greasing pan
* 1 cup peanut butter
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* 1 pound powdered sugar
* 1 cup of chocolate chips (or to taste)


Microwave butter and peanut butter for 2 minutes on high. Stir and microwave on high for 2 more minutes. Add vanilla and powdered sugar to peanut butter mixture and stir to combine with a wooden spoon. Add chocolate chips, stirring slightly. They don’t need to melt all the way.

Pour into a buttered 8 by 8-inch pan lined with parchament baking paper. Place a second piece of parchament paper on the surface of the fudge and refrigerate until cool (you can used buttered aluminum foil instead but it will be kinda weird). Cut into 1-inch pieces and store in an airtight container for up to a week.
