Around the world on 4/20

We’ve already shared our guide to 4/20 in Colorado, but we know not all of you can get here for the High Holidays.

So we thought we’d share the fun by sharing a taste of the other events that are happening around the globe. If you know of a fun/historic/important event happening in your corner of the world, drop us a line at cannabist@denverpost.com.

All events are being held on Thursday, April 20, with time listed as local, unless indicated otherwise.

United States

Washington, D.C.
1st Annual Congressional Joint Session

Near the corner of 1st St. & Constitution Ave. NE (on non-federal land)
High Noon until 4:20pm
Hosted by legalization activist group DCMJ, who are giving away two free joints to all members of Congress, congressional staff, interns, support staff, and credentialed journalists who are 21 years of age and in possession of a congressional ID. We want members of Congress, congressional staff, interns, support staff, and credentialed journalists to legally obtain cannabis so they will support removing cannabis entirely from the Controlled Substances Act. Moreover, we are demanding Congress remove the DC rider that prevents the DC government changing it’s cannabis laws.

UPDATE: DCMJ has another event planned for Monday 4/24, a protest “smoke-in” on the steps of the U.S. Capitol
