Happy 420!

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Vancouver’s iconic 420 protest.

With the announcement of a huge headlining act and the ever expanding weed market, online message boards have been rife with heated debate about the validity of the protest going into the future.

” Smoke In” protest by local hippies that’d been squatting in various Gas Town warehouses.
