It might be hard for some weed enthusiasts to find a rally to celebrate 4/20 since it isn’t legal in all 50 states, but that doesn’t mean they have to miss out on the fun. For those who want to celebrate the unofficial stoner holiday, here are some other ways to participate:
1. Watch classic stoner movies. This suggestion comes courtesy of BroBible. While getting high, play films like “Easy Rider,” “Half Baked,” “Woodstock,” “Dazed and Confused,” “The Big Lebowski,” “Friday,” Pineapple Express,” “Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle,” “Dude, Where’s My Car,” “Super Troopers” and anything from Cheech and Chong or the Jay and Silent Bob series.
2. Bake a cake. 4/20 is about celebrating weed, and no party is complete without a cake. Whether it’s pot-infused or not, a delicious cake will be a big hit among revelers. Add 4/20-friendly decorations, like a marijuana leaf or puff of smoke, to make it more festive. Instead of candles, use joints. Add green food-coloring to the icing. For those who are artistic, try to shape the cake to resemble a pot leaf.
3. Enjoy the outdoors. They don’t call it herb for nothing. For some stoners, doing weed is the closest they get to walking through a lush, green wood. Since 4/20 coincides with the beginning of spring, try a walk through the park or hike at the nearest preserve to celebrate.
4. Get educated. With marijuana becoming more acceptable in the United States, there is plenty to learn about pot and legislature. For those who simply want to know more about cannabis, try websites like High Times.
5. When all else fails, go on a trip to a 4/20-friendly state. What better time to leave your native digs then 4/20? Surround yourself among other revelers when you travel to Colorado or Washington. Not only is it legal to smoke pot there, but cities like Denver and Seattle are great places to explore, in addition to visiting the dispensaries.
