“FUN STORY: few years ago, (more than 3ish) showed up a lil high to Easter brunch...classic. My old man asked why...said "I dunno, makes things fun." He replied, "how much more fun do you need to have, life is so good, I’m high on life. I never want anything that will take me out of my current life. Being high in life is better than anything else.

He concluded, as he included the symbol for World Cannabis day:

“Long story short...haven’t smoked since then. Just HIGH ON LIFE NOW!, happy & healthy & can’t thank God enough to see another day! Happy 4/20 sorry if that was a buzz killer lol”
