Holidays

Pot Candy, Sleep Aids, and Anti-Energy Drinks

Happy 4/20! This holiday, once underground, has gone mainstream. MTV lists quite a few celebrations and legalization demonstrations in San Francisco, Seattle, and even Topeka, Kansas. (Willie Nelson is performing.)

At 4:20 p.m., thousands of people are expected to "light up" in solidarity.

Since we at Short Order can't condone the use of illegal substances on our blog (Okay, attorneys? Happy now?), we suggest a few legal ways to get you in the spirit of the holiday with some tools to help mellow you out -- even at the office.
