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.
