In order to form the most perfect session, establish the best ways to elevate 2024, and ensure domestic tranquility, we convene on the 20th of April to exercise our pursuit of happiness with a communal ignition of liberty. Much like the Constitution lays the foundation for laws and rights, 420 lays a blanket of unity over stoners everywhere. It’s a day when the ‘smoke of the people’ rises in a peaceful assembly, celebrating not just a plant, but a symbol of shared values and culture. 62% of Californians believe Proposition 64 has had a positive impact on the state (DCC). We weeded through the fruits of that growing opinion and found the best ways to pursue your perfect session on 420.
