Four-Twenty: This means nothing. Maybe.

Every year, for this day that probably maybe means nothing (it honestly doesn't, I just think it's funny) we post a little something tying into the popular reference of 4-20. Enjoy!
Well, step one, put the lighter down...
'A crack in the plaster'?  Seriously?
Um, yeah, that's how it got in my garden, too...
'Control other creatures,' oh, yeah, sure.
'Yes sir!  I snipped it, weighed it, bagged it, and sold it while you were sleeping!  Hope you don't mind!'

From Strange Tales #94, "Save Me from the Weed!" Plotted and written by Larry Lieber and Stan Lee, pencils by Jack Kirby, inks by Dick Ayers. Reprinted in Monster Menace #2.

For more, and frankly, more terrifying horror, check out The Horrors of It All, which posts classic pre-Comics Code horror at a frantic pace. It's not just the old EC stuff, which is about the only ones I'm familiar with; Karswell is posting stuff I'd never even heard of before. I had no idea Harvey, home of Casper and Richie Rich, used to have a horror line, until The Horrors of It All. Check it.

A pre-code horror comics blog? You know I'm there!!!

Plus, I'm such a nerd that I had to click on the Wikipedia link to figure out the 420 reference.
