LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Today is 4/20 and one cannabis enthusiast is urging stoners to be semi-productive between puffs.

Although the stoner’s holiday is meant for smoking and relaxing, weed activist Craig X Rubin says there’s lots of money to be made from pot.

Instead of sitting around toking aimlessly, he wants potheads to enroll in “Craig X Academy” on profitfrompot.com, an educational video program that shows how to make money from marijuana.

Besides growing and selling it, Rubin says pot can be used to make natural fuel to curb our dependency on foreign oil.

It can also be used as food, since marijuana seeds have “more digestive protein than the soy bean.”

Rubin believes 4/20 is the perfect day to pursue higher education on the power of pot. Between bongloads he’ll remember late hemp activist Jack Herer, the original pioneer of using pot in various ways, who Rubin met when he was 12.
