Tax Day Tea Baggers and 4/20 pot smokers are amazingly alike: Kenny Be's Worst-Case Scenario

Tea Baggers and pot smokers may seem like opposites. But today's Tax Day Tea Party and Tuesday's Denver 4/20 pot rally may reveal many similarities...

Members of both groups love to "hog the spotlight" by wearing attention-getting outfits and organizing media-seeking rallies.

Both groups frame their protests around health-care concerns to appear more mainstream and to draw attention away from their true agendas. An individual's involvement in either of these groups will initially produce euphoria, relaxation, perceptual alterations of reality and talkativeness. Prolonged association can result in paranoia, racing heartbeat and acute anxiety.
