April 20 is the world recognized international day of celebration for Planet Earth’s 170,000,000 humans in the cannabis culture. 4:20 began as a moment, then a whole day, of celebration when California high school students met after school in the late 60’s and early 70’s at 4:20 p.m. in the afternoon.

Classes ended at 4:00 p.m. so after a reasonable time to get one’s sh*t together, it was agreed to meet at “4:20” in the p.m. after school to get high. It passed from those high school students into the 70’s Grateful Dead culture where it spread all across the United States.

By the early 1990’s, 4:20 p.m was the toke of the day, the cannabis siesta. In the late 1990’s, spontaneous groups of 10’s, dozens, and hundreds people in cities around the world began a tradition. Over 35 alternative stories, legends, rumours about the origins of 4:20 are known to circulate, including in the mainstream media, but the simple explanation is the correct history.

Vancouver saw its first celebration on April 20 in 1997, when 50 people met at the downtown Art Gallery to smoke cannabis together at 4.20 p.m.

Today, if the weather is fine, over 7,000 people are expected to be jammed into the main city square at Georgia Street between Howe St. and Hornby St., beginning in the early afternoon and climaxing with a massive simulateneous smoke-out at 4.20 p.m today!

What’s going on in the cannabis culture today near you?

Here is the Cannabis Culture 411 for 420?

Ganja Get Together’s will be proudly protesting the unjust prohibition of cannabis by proudly promoting and puffing in cities across Canada, the United States and the World.

The 420 Smoke Outs, are a series of cannabis rallies that will demonstrate, as they do every year, the impracticability of enforcing the current marijuana laws.

April 20th is the grandest ganja day of them all, with enthusiasts from around the world celebrating what is known as Four Twenty (420).

With an international reputation, as the best day for holding marijuana demonstrations, drugpeace activists invite all herb enthusiasts to join them in solidarity.

Everyone is invited to publicly show their love of the weed and experience a taste of freedom on Friday, April 20th 2007, by doobie demonstrating with activists in your area.

Many well-known tourist’s traps have been targeted for toking in North America, from Toronto’s Yonge and Dundas Square, to Denver’s Civic Center Park, to the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, all the way to Vancouver?s Art Gallery and many more.

Two weeks before the world celebrates the Global Marijuana March on May 5th, the Cannabis Events on April 20th 2007 will be legendary for years to come.
