'The 420 Games' Planned For Golden Gate Park

I have always wanted to see a marijuana based competition. I am a big fan of the movie ‘Beer Fest.’ At the end of that movie the main characters of the movie run into Willie Nelson who was supposed to be meeting up with Cheech and Chong for ‘Weed Fest.’ I always thought there would be a follow up movie, complete with marijuana competitions similar to the beer competitions in ‘Beer Fest.’ Unfortunately a movie like that hasn’t been released yet.

In fact, activists there are working very hard to spread awareness and acheive reform. They are planning a protest at the upcoming South Dakota State Fair.
