A new fundraiser between the Colorado Disability Funding Committee and the State Department of Transportation is auctioning pot-themed license plates through April 20, April 20. The charity auction, announced on April 1st (but not an April Fool’s joke), will raise funds to provide support and resources to disabled people across Colorado.

The fourteen government-issued signs contain words and phrases such as “BONG”, “HASH”, “STASH”, “INDICA”, “GANJA”, “GOTWAX” and “ISIT420”, as well as tamer terms like “HEMP,” GREEN “and” HONEY The remainder will be displayed on the auction website. The highest earning label to date is ISIT420, which is currently accepting bids for over $ 6,500. The Marsh family’s fictional cannabis farm in South Park is currently priced at over $ 2,250.

The state plans to return next year with another 4/20 auction in April. Here are some suggestions for the next round of stoner records:

A nod to the classic variety and a favorite among Colorado tokens.

Someone must already have this as a vanity as its omission is surprising.

If we’re to keep the South Park references, this classic character has been an icon of Stoner culture since the show’s creators first introduced him in 2001. Take your new plate with you on a trip back in time – and don’t forget to bring a towel!

Let’s not forget the original cartoon stoner we fell in love with, Shaggy Rogers, whose catchphrase “zoinks” was as much of a gimmick as his appetite for Scooby snacks (which is now also a weed, by the way).

Tell the cop there’s a water pipe to stick your weeds in, man!

Someone could definitely be driving around with this one, hopefully by mistake.

For the guy and girl who have love in their hearts and joints that are hidden behind their ears.
