5. 420 in the Park
Notably, San Francisco’s 420 in the Park is a city-permitted event this year. In other words, you’re welcome to light up as much as you please without repercussions.
It’s still technically illegal to smoke at Golden Gate Park. But it seems as though this year the city is breaking its own laws. Read more about San Fran’s 420 in the Park here.
6. London 420 Rally
Although it is still illegal to publically consume the herb in the UK, that’s not stopping the annual London 420 Rally. Each year, the event takes place at Hyde Park to protest the country’s criminalization of cannabis.
