San Francisco is one of the best places to celebrate 420. Music venues across the Bay Area are hosting stoner-friendly acts in the days around the marijuana holiday, setting the mood for some stoney festivities, beyond the annual Hippie Hill gathering.
420 started in San Rafael thanks to five smoker friends who gathered after high school to smoke at 4:20pm. It became a code word to communicate that it was time to smoke. Today, smokers from around the world celebrate 4/20 with overstuffed blunts, packed bowls, filtered joints and tasty edibles.
Here’s our list of the best events and things to do on and around 420 in San Francisco.
