Celebrate 420 day with these metro Detroit festivities, sales


It’s the day pot lovers around the world celebrate – 4/20 days – and now that recreational marijuana is legal in Michigan there are plenty of places to celebrate Tuesday.

Legend has it that April 20 began in Marin County, California when a group of five high school friends said they would meet up at 4:20 pm after school to smoke weed. That turned into the abbreviation for 420, which has become a not-so-subterranean way of saying, “Let’s go high.”

Michigan Pot Pharmacies across the state are holding special events and sales on April 20th:

High Times Cannabis Cup Michigan

Michigan’s largest cannabis event calls on people to pick the winners for the first time. Cannabis lovers can rate their favorite brands with 76 participating companies. Assessment kits are available for $ 100 to $ 300, depending on the category. Panellists smoke or otherwise use a pot and give their comments.
