I get high. But since I get high every day, that’s not all that special, is it? But this time, I get high and really THINK about cannabis. How far we’ve come with legalization and normalization. How far we have yet to go. I let gratitude for the plant be a big part of my day.
Dee Dussault, author, Ganja Yoga

Before legalization it was a time to feel free and fully into the culture. Things have changed since legalization, but the culture still thrives.

Amanda Reiman, vice president, community relations, Flow Kana

I usually celebrate 4/20 by starting off with a fun wake and bake!

Jeff the 420 Chef, author, The Ganja Gourmet

For the last 14 years in a row, I have had a camera in my hand at 4:20 on 4/20 instead of a joint. As a cannabis photographer, I absolutely LOVE that 4/20 is a workday, so you will never hear me complain about working on 4/20!

Kim Sidwell, photographer, Cannabis Camera

I usually text my friends “Happy 4:20” if I happen to notice it’s 4:20 during the day. If I’m able to I will always spark it up.

That’s a good thing. We deserve a holiday. Like St. Paddy’s Day is to drinking, April 20 is for smoking, vaping and other forms of cannabis consumption.Read more at: https://www.leafly.com/news/lifestyle/what-does-420-mean-to-you-we-asked-12-cannabis-leaders
