GRASSIFIEDS Photo by Jessie Foster 4/20 CALENDAR JESSIE FOSTER They say it all started with a group of high school kids smoking pot beside a wall on April 20, in 1971. Since then, the 420 ritual was adopted by the Grateful Dead, spread across the country and embedded deeply into North American culture. Now there are global celebrations in almost every corner of our planet. Here are some of the greenest ganja festivities of 2018. Vancouver 420 , Sunset Beach, April 20 JESSIE FOSTER BEATROUTE’S VANCOUVER DISPENSARY GUIDE After the notoriously messy event held last year at Sunset Beach, the city has decided to go ahead anyways and host the 24th annual 420 celebration. They are expecting more than 100,000 people to join the peaceful protest in the war against cannabis and rejoice in weed culture. Finish off the afternoon with a trip to the farmers market. Five Alarm Funk, Commodore Ballroom, April 20 Vancouver’s Five Alarm Funk will be playing their 420 show at the Commodore. The eight-person group are promised to be nothing short of funky on their North American tour. Get your tickets early for this 2018 Juno Nominated band.
