If you were super bummed that the 420 Rally in Denver was cancelled last weekend, take solace in knowing that it has finally officially been rescheduled! As you probably already know, the event that was set to celebrate the epic non-official holiday of April 20th (420) on the 16th was canceled due to bad weather. When the announcement was made, there were no plans for a reschedule or even issue refunds at the time.
Another 4/20 has come and gone and as usual there were massive celebrations around the world. Cannabis users came together to rally and blaze up in the name of freedom. Below is just a sampling of 4/20 videos from around the world. (Warning: some videos contain strong language.)
Today is April 20th, which translates to the unofficial official holiday of stoners everywhere.

We want to dispel any myths that may make you look foolish in your powwow circle during this crucial holiday, as well as give you some other 420-related facts to pass around.

I could use some of the delectable buds they had on display right about now — that might help.

What TSA agents found in normal luggage on Saturday morning looked like a hand grenade. When the local bomb squad was brought in to investigate, the police department concluded it was a marijuana grinder shaped like the explosive device, said TSA Spokesperson Lorie Dankers. (Haha, Dank-ers.)
