There are many reasons to celebrate 4/20.
It's Earth Day. It's also the day Apollo 16 landed on the moon. And the day of Danica Patrick's landmark first win for a female driver in an Indy race.
OK, so you maybe you just want to focus on celebrating the little green plant with mood-altering tendencies. But since this ain't Colorado, here are three legal ways to enjoy 4/20 by embracing a little seed called hemp.

Fuel up like a hippie with the Southwest Stuffed Avocado. Served with endive for dipping and loaded with fresh tomato, feta, black beans, sweet corn, and hemp-seed agave, you may never order boring old guacamole again.
