Today is the best day of the year, the stoner's Christmas, 4/20. Here are a list of major events happening around the country right now and this weekend!
Located in San Franscisco, CA, 420 in the park is a well known San Franciscan tradition. Tens and thousands of people from all over the world come to light up at Sharon Meadow park to celebrate the use of cannabis. In previous years, it was unofficial and technically an illegal event, but since the event happened on such a large scale, and visitors trashing up the park (specifically 11 tons) in 2016, the state has come to recognize this as an official event. They've hired sponsors to fence in the area and to keep it clean.
Known as the Super Bowl of cannabis events, this three day festival starts on 4/21 and will bring out Nas, A$AP Ferg, and Wu-Tang Clan.
If you are in Los Angeles on 420, make sure to keep the night free and go see Snoop Dogg on his Mount Kushmore Wellness Retreat tour. Snoop Dogg is also bringing on Wiz Khalifa, Cypress Hill, Method Man, Redman, and Lil Uzi Vert as apart of the concert!
One of Seattle's biggest cannabis celebrating events is Hempfest, which doesn't happen for a few more months. But until then, official Hempfeset members are invited to celebrate at the annual 420 Fest. A fee of $15 for a membership will grant you entry into this festival. But it's well worth it as it will get you joint rolling lessons, music, and a chocolate fondue fountain for your munchies!
This is just the tip of the iceberg, cities all across America are celebrating this amazing day. To find out more local events make sure to check out Slyng's event page to see what's happening locally near you.
