Skip to comments.Golden Gate Park pot party a major mess [San Francisco]
Posted on 04/22/2013 6:05:45 AM PDT by Lonely Bull
San Francisco park workers and volunteers spent much of Sunday picking up and hauling away 10,000 pounds of garbage strewn all over the eastern part of Golden Gate Park known as Hippie Hill, the remnants of Saturday's annual yet unofficial pot-smoking bacchanalia.
But this year's annual celebration - which falls each year on April 20 and is known as "420" - drew a larger-than-average crowd of between 10,000 and 15,000 revelers on the warm weekend day. They proceeded to smoke, drink, eat and rack up more than $10,000 in costs for city crews to clean up the mess, ironically just before Earth Day.
Even by early Sunday afternoon, mounds of empty bags of chips, candy wrappers, snack containers, plastic cups, bottles and other debris still remained to be picked up, the fallout of what appeared to an enormous, collective case of the munchies.

I’ve been to music festivals lately, non-accustic - they use compostable cups, plates, forks etc and do not sell water in plastic bottles. The last one I went to was left pristine. These stoners are horrible. In other words, the 20 and 30 somethings do know how to behave as a group but there are always the bad eggs.
They are too busy celebrating “Earth Day” to be bothered with cleaning up after themselves.
So, like normal, liberals make a mess of things. After nearly 50 years, still nothing has changed.
Gaia is not amused.
You mean Lefty dopers don’t clean after themselves ? Far out, man.
Shocked I tell ya. Simply shocked. What will mama erf think of them now? I’m kinda thinkin’ that when man has run his course on the erf, she’ll just shake it off like a wet dog and keep wandering around the sun like we were never here. That reminds me. Gotta back the cars out of the garage and crank em up to idle in the driveway for a few hours. Proud to be increasing my carbon footprint to make up for the lights out crowd.
fags and drags
I will turn on my BIG amp, play my Les Paul Real Loud, and then go for a ride on my Harley.

Dirty smelly hippies are always dirty and smelly and never clean up after themselves!!!!
No way - 10 to 15 thousand pot heads got together in a park for smoking and drinking and they left a mess...Oh my God who would have seen that coming...I mean, aren’t these the MOST responsible among us. They can smoke pot, hold jobs, and raise families...they aren’t hurting anybody.
In San Francisco it’s legal to urinate and crap in the streets and to dash down Castro nude with a carrot shoved up your ass.
Another decade, or less, and this decaying city on the Bay will be a no-man’s land excepting, that is, for the romantic cable cars. They’ll still be running with homosexual passengers pickin’ and grinnin’.
I was at the first Gathering of Eagles in DC, where they were on one side of the fence and we were on the other. When it was over, the Lefty’s side was a sea of trash, and ours was tidy to the degree that it had obviously been a point of pride.
I’ve seen the same thing many times since.
If you wander into DC and see an event going on and don’t know what kind of people are there, just look at the ground when they’re done.
Or the quality of the folks who ride the FART (Fey Area Rapid Transit)...
Roger that. Turn all my amps to 11 and plug in my ‘82 blackout Strat in one, my Donahue Tele in one and my ‘65 Epiphone Riviera in the other one. Leave the Hemi Ram runnin’ in the driveway for a while and take extra time at the red lights when we go out for the day. Turn on both ovens to the “self clean” mode which takes about 5 hours and just have a wonderful fossil fuel day. Woo Hoo! Go dino!
April 20 = Hitlers birthday
Those are some nice axes, Bro!
Mine is a first edition Robot.
Hell, it’s GREEN, so gaia will LOVE it!
Ebony Fretboard, Mother of pearl inlays, and just MAYBE the Nut is IVORY! LOL!
My Harley is over 20 years old, and has straight pipes!
You got TWO ovens? Do you make a lot of Pizza????(With Bacon on it?)
My contribution: take the Miata for a long, spirited drive through the hills, then come home and plug my PRS into my Hot Rod Deluxe and crank it up to 12 (yes, 12)! And if I can find one, I’ll feast on a rotisseried spotted owl.
