Last year, Canadians celebrated their first legal 4/20 with coast to coast parties. This year’s 4-20 was all online, with streaming smoke-sessions over Zoom and other platforms, some puns and poetry, but no physical gatherings, and police on hand to make sure. Vancouver’s Sunset Beach remained empty.

Since everyone’s online, this 4/20 was an opportunity for new projects to drop.
- Canopy Growth‘s investment arm Canopy Rivers launched its new cannabis-business publication the Rise (edited by former Globe and Mail Cannabis Pro reporter Jameson Berkow). Articles include: how sustainable REC packaging may not be sustainable, why women smoke more cannabis, and whether cannabis entrepreneurship is dead.
- Also launching on 4/20 was the Schizophrenia Society of Canada’s new website Cannabis & Psychosis: Exploring the Link.
If you’re missing the togetherness of the cannabis community, don’t forget there are only 100 slots in this year’s grassroots legal home-growing competition the 4 Plants Cup, and some are reserved. Might as well sign up now.
