This is "The Groovy Place"! You will find informative news, humorous posts, music videos, pot images and more. You will find marijuana news not only regarding legalization and it’s medicinal uses, but also you will enjoy the counterculture of the 60s and 70s that is still alive today... It's demonstrated by the display of new Hip graphic art and, of course, the music of Our time is still being played. I hope that the young and the old will enjoy my Facebook page and learn more about: The Beautiful Flower - marijuana.
This is my personal cause to free marijuana and to post informative and creative posts for all my Facebook friends to enjoy and share... If you support the liberation of Marijuana, be pro-active and share to get the word out.
It is criminal to outlaw a plant that has so many health and wellness properties. After all, God put this plant on Earth for a reason. Marijuana has been around for billions of years. Governments and some others, we all know who they are, are ignorant about the true facts regarding marijuana. I hope to shed some light on the truths about Mother Nature’s plan - Marijuana.
I also like to have fun with my page by posting “Classic Rock” videos, cool imaginative graphics, pictures of marijuana buds and plants, other people’s stories, and, of course, hippie memorabilia.
I am not selling anything or
promoting anything. This is just a groovy place to kick back with friends. This is Mardi's Funpagez!
I grew up during the 60-70s and still believe in Love and Peace. I am fascinated to learn that there are still so many old/and new Hippies out there sharing and liking my page. Thank you! Let’s keep grooving on...

History of 420 Day
History of 420 Day: Both marijuana smokers and non-smokers recognize April 20 or 4/20 as a national holiday for cannabis culture, but few actually know how the date got chosen.
Some say “420” is code among police officers for “marijuana smoking in progress.” Some note 4/20 is also Adolf Hitler’s birthday. And some go as far as to cite Bob Dylan’s song “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35” because 12 multiplied by 35 equals 420.
But, to put it bluntly, those rumors of the history behind how April 20, and 4/20, got associated with marijuana are false.
The most credible story traces 4/20 to Marin County, Calif. In 1971, five students at San Rafael High School would meet at 4:20 p.m. by the campus’ statue of chemist Louis Pasteur to partake. They chose that specific time because extracurricular activities had usually ended by then. This group — Steve Capper, Dave Reddix, Jeffrey Noel, Larry Schwartz, and Mark Gravich — became known as the “Waldos” because they met at a wall. They would say “420” to each other as code for marijuana.
As Reddix told TIME in 2017, “We got tired of the Friday-night football scene with all of the jocks. We were the guys sitting under the stands smoking a doobie, wondering what we were doing there.”
The shenanigans continued long after 4:20 p.m., too. The group challenged each other to find ever-more-interesting things to do under the influence, calling their adventures “safaris.”
Later, Reddix’s brother helped him get work with Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh as a roadie, so the band is said to have helped popularize the term “420.” On Dec. 28, 1990, a group of Deadheads in Oakland handed out flyers that invited people to smoke “420” on April 20 at 4:20 p.m. One ended up with Steve Bloom, a former reporter for High Times magazine, an authority on cannabis culture. The magazine printed the flyer in 1991 and continued to reference the number. Soon, it became known worldwide as code for marijuana. In 1998, the outlet acknowledged that the “Waldos” were the “inventors” of 420.
Bloom, now the publisher of Celebstoner.com, has credited the people who wrote the flyer for the date’s reputation as an annual gathering of pot smokers. “They wanted people all over the world to get together on one day each year and collectively smoke pot at the same time,” he wrote in 2015. “They birthed the idea of a stoner holiday, which April 20 has become.”
