How North America Celebrated This Year’s 420

Published

420 Celebration

4/20 came just a day before Easter, making the weekend sweet and memorable for weed enthusiasts and practicing spirituals alike. For those who are unaware, 4/20 is considered as an unofficial holiday which also acts as an international counterculture day. Apart from celebrating the movement and consuming cannabis, people around the world rally in support of this plant.

With more countries and locations around the globe legalizing marijuana and the use of pure cannabidiol, there is no surprise that celebrations in honor of this day are also becoming more prevalent and accessible. If you enjoyed a quiet day with your close friends and loved ones smoking your CBD oil vape pen, getting to know how the rest of the world celebrated 4/20 this 2019 might be of interest to you.

Below are some events which happened over the weekend. Use these to decide how you can amp up next year’s festivities or what you might want to join.

California

The Cannabis Cup returned to Sacramento Valley for this year’s 4/20. Spanning a two-day affair, this event featured an array of complimentary snacks as well as a ton of unique smoking accessories. Performers such as Willy J Peso and King Kahali were just some of the highlights of the event. Rae Sremmurd, Swae Lee, and Slim Jxm also closed down the first night, ending the celebration at an all-time high.

Colorado

Thousands of people gathered at the Civic Center Park in Colorado to celebrate this monumental holiday. Apart from people holding their traditional blunts and sharing it with others, many also opted to use a CBD vape pen.

In addition to coming together in celebration of this day, the state of Colorado also set up a Conversation Station care of the Colorado Department of Transportation. This government initiative aimed to educate attendees about the risks of driving while being under the influence of marijuana. This station also featured interactive activities such as guests being able to record and show their views about cannabis and driving. In partnership with the event, Lyft rides were given a $4.20 discount for the day.

Las Vegas

Sin City definitely knows how to throw a party. With the world’s largest dispensary located in town, Planet 13, Las Vegas surely opened its doors to thousands of people who came from different parts of the globe. Aside from dispensaries filling up with numerous people even at the start of the day, events and festivals also surrounded the city.

NuWu Cannabis Marketplace featured an array of marijuana and CBD oil products on site. CBD oil edibles, apparel, and accessories were also available for sale during the event. Alongside these, rappers and fellow weed enthusiasts Kurupt, Luna, Luniz, and Petey Pablo were the main highlights of the day.

Canada

It seems that Canadians had a blast in celebrating April 20 at precisely 4:20 p.m. There were tons of individuals that came in support of the event, bringing with them their weed to smoke on Parliament Hill in Ottawa or in Toronto.

However, despite the legalization that took place in the country, there were still many sellers who took to the streets. These people rallied and protested the lack of permits to sell. Many who came to the event wish to shed light not only on the celebration and how far the country has come, but also to instil a sense of protest and progress on the attendees.

There you have it! These are some of the events which happened on 4/20 this 2019. Look these up as you wait for next year’s 420 celebrations and you might find one that tickles your fancy.

Rey Rey Rodriguez: Entrepreneur, Visual Artist and Cannabis Advocate

Published

An interview with The Mind of Rey Rey® founder, Rey Rey Rodriguez.

When did you first try cannabis?

I was 13 years old the first time I tried cannabis.  I smoked socially throughout high school, stopped around the age of 19, and then picked it back up in my late 20’s.

What inspired you to smoke?

I always had an admiration for the plant.  Everyone I idolized as a kid, and the people I admire today are all considered potheads. I grew up watching Cheech & Chong’s films, and all my favorite musicians from the 60s till today, as well as my favorite athletes, public figures, and celebrities (Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Mike Tyson, Dave Chappelle, Michael Phelps, Cypress Hill, Snoop, Dre, Biggie, Pac, Nick & Nate Diaz, Elon Musk, Joe Rogan, Eddie Bravo and more) were / are all advocates of the herb.

Two of my favorite podcasts are B Real’s “Smokebox” and Mike Tyson’s “Hotboxin’,” where the hosts interview their guests while smoking.  One of my favorite events to watch is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competition called, “High Rollerz,” where the competitors smoke before they compete at the highest level.

No one can say that cannabis is a lazy or unintelligent person’s drug anymore.

What about cannabis do you like or enjoy?

I smoke / vape both Sativa and Indica, which affect me in two completely different ways.

Sativa clears my mind, allowing me to be present and to focus on whatever the current task at hand is.  Whether I’m working, reading, studying, practicing, or doing something else that requires concentration, it allows me to be more present and to dissect, observe, and problem solve better.

The intensity in which I interpret information heightens, and I find myself, breaking down art, music, movies, body movement, meditation and even memories on a deeper level. My imagination and ideas are more vivid. For me, sativa is good for any physical or mental activity.

I use indica for rest, relaxation, to calm the body and mind when it’s time to wind down, and to fall asleep.  This one helps clear my mind from any worry and stress.  It zones me out, I become one with my mattress and pillow, making my body feel weightless, and filling me with a cooling effect from the darkness as I lay there with my eyes closed.  Indica is perfect when you’re ready to knock out.

What would you say to those that still think cannabis is a dangerous drug?

I don’t think it’s for everyone but, the days of “Reefer Madness” and everyone assuming that pot will make us dumb, slow, brain dead, or will lead us to crack and heroin are behind us.  Cannabis is legal throughout the US in most states either for recreational or medicinal purposes.  Cancer, mental health, athletic recovery, brain trauma, and many other conditions are being treated with cannabis.  I’ve been diagnosed with PTSD, OCD, and ADHD.  I’m not sure if that doctor diagnosed me correctly, but I do know that his recommendation for all of those conditions was marijuana. 

Is there anything you’d recommend to those wanting to learn more about cannabis?

Anyone can do a Google search for most questions.  I like to refer those interested in current information on all things cannabis to visit High Times Magazine’s website.  And anyone that would like to learn a bit of the plant’s history and about the negative propaganda that led to it becoming illegal, should read Jack Herer’s book, “The Emperor Wears No Clothes.”
