On Thursday, April 20, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., will join six other marijuana reformers from both chambers — three Democrats, three Republicans — in addresses in D.C. for National Congressional Cannabis Policy Summit Forum.
These speeches are noteworthy for two reasons: One, that they will take place inside the Capitol Building, “a sign of the normalization of marijuana issues,” Marijuana moment put it. and second, that these political remarks would constitute what might be the only serious event of the day.
The reason is that 4/20, as it’s called, is a raucous annual day/week that celebrates marijuana culture—in what proponents consider the high point of the year. This is especially true this year, now that Covid has subsided. Among the biggest festivities:
· National Cannabis FestivalAnd On April 22, an outdoor concert takes place on the grounds of RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., where marijuana is still illegal but sources say the “snack area” shows are worth a visit.
· 4/20 Hippie Hill San Francisco, on April 20, usually draws thousands to Robin Williams Meadow in Golden Gate Park, where, since 2022, visitors can legally purchase marijuana from vendors.
· ban bar party 420, on April 20th, Seattle, at 421 S. Lander, next to Hemp City, Seattle’s first pot store. Live music, games, music, lottery prizes, and vendors will be on display at this event for all ages.
· 420 Mile High FestivalAnd Denver, on April 20, at Civic Center Park, will be offering free music. The Cannabis Community Experience for VIP ticket holders will take place at the McNichols Civic Center.
Celebrations often include 4/20 giveaways, and here, cannabis lovers can enjoy special offers. Therese, the cloud commerce platform for cannabis retailers, analyzed 7,500 discounters representing more than $3.5 million in sales to determine discount trends during the day and week of 4/20.
