Yesterday was 4/20. It was also Coachella. And so, the percentage of festival-goers who were stoned rose from a paltry 75 percent to a full 98 percent. (These estimates come courtesy of our editor, Ben Westhoff, who did a small survey with a margin of error of plus or minus 45 percent.)

Believe it or not, folks were also wearing marijuana garb! We talked to some of them about, you know, music and life and music and stuff.

Sparkly Shades Senorita (above) Band most excited to see: Black Keys Favorite album to listen to while high: "Anything. Whatever's on." Favorite strain: "Anything. What do you have?"
