In Duron Carter’s world, 4/20 is a holiday.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders receiver took to Twitter on Friday morning – April 20 – to offer positive vibes to his followers.
For those not fully up to date on their marijuana culture, 4/20 is a slang term that refers to the consumption of cannabis, especially smoking weed around the time 4:20 p.m. April 20 – fourth month, twentieth day 0r 4/20 – has become a day of celebration and, in some cases, protest in support of legalization.
Carter, it’s fair to say, is familiar with marijuana culture. He is a currently facing two possession charges from incidents at airports in Winnipeg and Regina this winter. The Manitoba charge may or may not involve pot cookies.
While Carter is likely to face the usual backlash for offering a little wink to 4/20 while facing criminal charges, it’s another example of why he continues to be one of the most compelling characters in the CFL. May your day be filled with random thoughts of nothingness too Duron.
Enjoy 4/20, dude.
