Cannabis-lovers lit up by the thousands at 4/20 protests across Canada on April 20.
The marijuana rallies were a huge success at Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto, Sunset Beach in Vancouver and Parliament Hill in Ottawa.
The day-long 4/20 protest rally was invented in Vancouver by activists working for Prince of Pot Marc Emery and has now become popular across North America.
Toronto’s 4/20 returned to Yonge-Dundas Square for its final year at that venue. It’s expanded so much over the years that it will be moving to Nathan Phillips Square in 2018 to accommodate a larger crowd.
Ottawa’s cannabis community met on the steps of Parliament Hill again this year to celebrate the plant they love and protest Justin Trudeau’s continued war on cannabis users.
