Oregon commemorated its 420 freedom this weekend with an event so ironic that Alanis Morissette is probably going to sing a song about it. (Because the dream of the ’90s is alive in Portland? Anyone? Just me then.)
At 4:20 am, the Coast Guard received a mayday call from the crew of the Blazer, a 75-foot boat that reported it was sinking 8 miles west of Siletz Bay. Soon after, the Blazer came to rest 420 feet beneath the ocean’s surface.
The boat was carrying 2,000 gallons of diesel fuel, and the Coast Guard is still investigating what caused its demise. Three of the five crew members were rescued by helicopter and the other two were rescued by boat. Three obtained minor injuries.
BUT—a boat named Blazer sank in 420 feet of water at 4:20 am just after Oregon legalized weed. A little too ironic, don't chya think? (Sorry.)
