April 20th. The “Stoner’s Day”. 420. This sacred and herbal day has become synonymous with a global counterculture hazy holiday celebrated by cannabis consumers everywhere.
And one of the OGs that’s been around to see the 420 cannabis culture sprout from its birth has been High Times. According to their website, HIGH TIMES Magazine has been at the center of cannabis counterculture since 1974. Their history of rebellion includes original contributions from storied writers including Truman Capote, Charles Bukowski and Hunter S. Thompson to name a few.
For our epic 420 sesh, Mary Jane Gibson – culture editor at High Times – sits down at the table to celebrate the international stoner holiday and share High Times’ role in the history. We indulge ounces of weed, half-gram dabs, and an epic, three-course medicated meal from Jeff the 420 Chef. Happy 420, Cannabis Community!
