Months ago, stoners everywhere were looking forward to a full month of 420; the parties and planning was well in the works. Unfortunately, the coronavirus had other ideas. Thankfully, the cannabis community adapted quickly, moving the party indoors and online, so that we can celebrate 420 at home. The lineup of live streams is getting really good! For those of you partaking in the 4/20 festivities, here’s what’s happening online.
Start time – ‘high noon’ (11:50am Pacific or 4:20pm Newfoundland Daylight Time)
This year, tune in and bring 420 Vancouver to your living room! On top of the blunts and bong rips, some of the line up includes good tunes, cannabis activists and see clips from Vancouver’s previous years. This year, 420 Vancouver will be hosted by The Cannabis Life Network, Pot TV and Studio710. If you are missing the local community and you need a taste of that West Coast, BC Bud, join 420 Vancouver for a smoking session.
With the feel of a Telethon, ‘The Great American Sesh In’ will feature B-Real, Tommy Chong, Rob Garza of Thievery Corporation, David Gans and other guests. All the money raised will go to support first responders dealing with the Covid crisis. The mission of this Festival is to celebrate 420 at home with music, the arts, and cannabis; all while promoting social distancing and safety.
Tony Diepenbrock is a cannabis enthusiast from California and this year, he has invited you to smoke weed with him. At 4:20 pm PDT, he will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for “Most People Consuming Cannabis on Video Chat.” An engineer with a background in the cannabis industry, Tony can smoothly set up a zoom conference for 1,000 people. If you have ever dreamed of breaking a Guinness World Record, reserve your spot. Profits from the event will go to helping free inmates convicted with cannabis-related charges.
