4/20 Cannabis Events in 2019

Browse our guide below to find out what's happening in a wide variety of cannabis friendly states across America

Colorado

Back to Top

In recent years, Colorado has been the epicenter of 4/20 celebrations. However, with the recent legalization wave, the Centennial State might start seeing smaller crowds on marijuana's biggest holiday. Don't count out Colorado just yet though, plenty of people traveled to the Mile High and beyond to take part in 4/20 celebrations in 2018 and 2019 will be no different. There's plenty of cannabis-related fun to be had this year, so much that we created a 4/20 guide specifically for Colorado! Check it out below:

California

Back to Top

After officially commencing recreational cannabis sales in January of 2018, California has had over a year now to get their legal market off the ground. And while sales have fallen short of initial expectations, the celebrations for 4/20 will not. There are tons of opportunities to get involved in the California cannabis community on 4/20 this year and we have them all in one place for you.

Check out what California has planned:

7:30 PM

Kepler's Books
1010 El Camino Real
Menlo Park, CA 94025

Cannabis is here to stay. While it's still blacklisted by the federal government, recreational marijuana is legal now in ten states, Washington DC, and the Northern Mariana Islands. And the market for CBD - the non-psychoactive pot ingredient touted for relief of stress, epilepsy, and countless other ills - is expected to hit 22 million dollars in three years. Meanwhile, regulation of cannabis for both getting high and for medical treatment lags hopelessly behind its use. Who's going to make the rules if the feds sit this one out? And with inroads made by major corporations into what had been a thriving underground market, what becomes of the old mom and pop operations, and the criminal cartels that capitalized on prohibition?

Michigan

Back to Top

After legalizing recreational cannabis in November of 2018, Michigan will have its first fully-legal 4/20 in 2019. Unlike Massachusetts however, Michigan does not yet have a retail model in place. Despite the fact that adults in Michigan won't be able to purchase cannabis from dispensaries, the hype surrounding cannabis is higher than ever before. Plus, consuming cannabis is legal, so you better believe that people will be celebrating 4/20 in 'high' fashion.

4/20 should be huge in Michigan post-legalization, check out what’s happening:

Oregon grew over a million pounds of cannabis last year and much of it has yet to be consumed. The overproduction of cannabis in Oregon is driving down prices on the wholesale and consumer fronts, making for cheap prices at the dispensary and low margins for business owners. Despite the issues with supply and demand, Oregon has maintained a vibrant cannabis culture that is sure to turn up in April. Who knows, maybe copious consumption around 4/20 will help put a dent in the state's cannabis surplus!

Illinois

Back to Top

With the election of pro-cannabis Governor J.B. Pritzker, marijuana advocates in Illinois are expecting legalization to happen in the very near future. Because of this, the people of Illinois have a lot to celebrate this 4/20. Coupled with a growing medical cannabis industry, recreational marijuana could revitalize Illinois’ economy and help millions of people gain safe access to cannabis products. And because of Chicago’s strong influence on the nation, legalization in Illinois could help nudge federal lawmakers in the right direction.

For now, check out what’s happening this 4/20 in Illinois:
