“Marijuana is legal. Haircuts are not. It took fifty years, but the hippies have finally won”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic resulted in some businesses being declared essential, and others as non-essential (and illegal).

“From Facebook: Marijuana is now legal, but not haircuts. The hippies have finally won” was posted on Twitter by Brian O’Connell on May 13, 2020. “Marijuana is legal but haircuts are not. The hippies have finally won” was posted on Twitter by Rob Z later on May 13, 2020. “Marijuana is legal. Haircuts are not. It took 50 years, but hippies have finally won” was posted on Twitter by Djraj515Alive also on May 13, 2020.
