Aftermath: Devin The Dude's Fragrant 4/20 Party At Warehouse Live

Click here for a slideshow from the concert.

Aftermath had high hopes for Devin the Dude's 4/20 concert at Warehouse Live, even though we've already seen Devin at that same exact venue performing mostly the same songs. The difference is that this is a 4/20 concert. That difference becomes clear as we approach the door, where Warehouse security guards probably spent a good two minutes scanning us thoroughly: "Empty your pockets, please."

We suspect that they are hoping to find a metal lighter. It couldn't have been a gun. This guy must be high if he thinks stoners are violent people.

Inside, we spot a skinny black guy rocking a variation of the Abraham Lincoln chin-curtain beard. Life has taught us to always trust a guy with an Abraham Lincoln beard. We ask about the Devin the Dude DVDs on the table in front of him. He proceeds to deliver a spiel on the need to decriminalize marijuana. Stoked by the prospect of legalization, the gentleman who goes by Shashon Jenkins had started an organization to create awareness in Georgia, Texas and Lousiana. Proceeds from the DVD sales, he claims, will go toward an effort to put marijuana on the ballot in Texas. Good luck with that, sir.
