Here in Colorado 420 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 Colorado 420 festivities. We’ll be updating this list all the way up to the big day. Read entrie article with list of events at Cannabist
