The United States’s cannabis industry has been growing tremendously. It’s only natural that there are all sorts of events surrounding 4/20, and if you live in states that have legalized marijuana, or maybe live close by, or even if you’re willing to drop everything and go on an adventure, I’ve got the guide for you.

Let’s explore together some of the best places and experiences in these cannabis-friendly states just in time for the festivities!


California

The state of California officially began selling recreational cannabis in January 2018. With four years in the making, the cannabis market has been growing and maturing immensely, so much that it’s attracted tourists looking to have memorable cannabis experiences. 

From painting to music festivals, here are the top 3 activities that are happening this April:

This outdoor rooftop has experienced local artists that will guide you step-by-step through creating a work of art.

Colorado

Colorado legalized cannabis in 2014, and since then, it has faithfully celebrated the 4/20 holiday. There’s plenty of stuff to do, whether it’s just taking a walk at some regional parks or even going to a series of baseball games.

 

Dinosaur Ridge

Want to spend your 4/20 checking out visible dinosaur fossils and footprints?  I sure as hell would love to!

Dinosaur Ridge is a very unique piece of geological history that is a part of Winters Park, which, years ago, contemplated animals such as Stegosaurus, Apatosaurus, Diplodocus, and Allosaurus. 

Make sure to plan your visit well by bringing water, sunscreen, and dressing for changing weather!

  • Location: 16831 W Alameda Pkwy, Morrison, CO

Rockies Games

Colorado’s favorite team is back! Have you heard the news?

The Rockies play a baseball game every day from April 14th to April 20. Seven games may sound a bit exhausting, but if you’re willing to attend every single one of them, it’s a relief to know that seats can often be found cheap.

If you wish to attend a few games or only one, that could leave plenty of money for food and cannabis and make the baseball game even more compelling!

Washington

Washington legalized medical marijuana in 1998.  In December 2012, it became the first U.S. state to legalize recreational use of marijuana and also the first to allow recreational marijuana sales. 

There are events around 4/20, but I’ve selected three unusual ones that will most likely spark your curiosity.

  • Location: 4511 Shilshole Avenue Northwest Seattle, WA

Gateway Show with Billy Anderson

The dynamic is simple: stand-up comedians tell you jokes, get super high, and come back and attempt to tell more jokes.

Getting high inside the venue is not allowed; however, they take an intermission for a reason… Once you leave the venue, you’re allowed to do whatever you need to do, then go back.

  • Date: Wednesday, April 20, 2022, from 8 PM to 10 PM
  • Price: $20 - $50

Suppose you’re single and willing to mingle. In that case, I have some great news for you: Epiphany Events is partnering with Defrost Dating, where guests who indicate that they are "single" will have a red ribbon tied around their wrist, that way, they can easily spot each other at the Ball.

  • Price: $10 - $1,000
