I feel like a kid on Christmas. It’s 4/20, and I’m lucky enough to be in Denver, Colorado. I was here last year for 4/20, and it was like no other 4/20 I had ever participated in. The rally at the capital was one of the pinnacle moments of my time here at The Weed Blog. Seeing tens of thousands of people exercising their First Amendment rights in support of marijuana reform was magical, and I’m so happy to participating in it again this year. However, I won’t be at the rally all day because the first ever legal High Times Cannabis Cup is today and tomorrow. If you are lucky enough to have tickets, I’ll see you there! If you can’t make it to the Cup, we will be posting pictures and summaries during and after the event, so not all is lost! Below is the schedule for the Cup:
Doors open at noon both days of the expo. The seminar stage is located in the main building of EXDO. The awards show will take place in the expo hall of EXDO’s main building.
