Here in Colorado 4/20 has been a big deal since well before the state legalized adult-use cannabis three years ago. And given that this year’s 4/20 happens on a Thursday — two days after the federal income tax deadline and two days ahead of Earth Day — there should be all sorts of reasons to celebrate.
Trivia time: “420” reportedly became slang for cannabis-related activities decades ago, when a group of high school students in California used the term to describe their regular meet-up time after classes: 4:20 p.m., when they relaxed following what was presumably a hard day of academia.
Here’s a calendar of events currently scheduled to take place in and around the 4/20 festivities. We’ll be updating this list all the way up to the big day. Read entrie article with list of events at Cannabist
