1st Legal Weed Purchaser

I'm Not Smoking It!

1/2/2014 1:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0102-sean-azzariti-Getty
The first man to make a legal weed purchase in the United States ... ever ... is doing the most un-stoner thing possible with his new stash -- he's locking it away in a safe.

32-year-old Sean Azzariti tells TMZ, he's storing his 3.5 grams of Bubba Kush, his truffle edible, and his $57 receipt from the Denver dispensary where he bought all the stuff because he plans to donate it to a museum.

"It's a piece of history, dude," Sean says.

But Sean didn't go un-high on the big day -- he tells us he blazed through some weed from his personal collection to celebrate the momentous occasion, and subsequently binged on gingerbread waffles with apple puree.

TMZ you guys should look up FDR. First legal weed buy "ever" in the US is historically incorrect.

You rarely see the States in a good light, but I'll give credit where credit is due and this 50% decrease in smokers since 50 years back (http://www.pressreader.com/bookmark/6ID32ERD54F7/TextView) is pretty impressive.
