Dank Cannabis Dispensary is working hard to ensure that cannabis enthusiasts in Calgary, Alberta, have everything they need in time for the “highest holiday of the year”, 420.

420 is the slang term used by marijuana smokers all over the world to talk about April 20th. It can also denote 4:20 PM, the time that is considered to be the special moment in the day when smoking cannabis is socially acceptable. What started as a way for a group of teenagers in San Rafael, California to talk in codes about when to secretly convene on their high school grounds to partake in a make-believe treasure hunt to find an abandoned cannabis crop, soon caught the attention of a prominent writer for High Times, one of the most popular underground marijuana and cannabis culture-related magazines of the time. After an article in the magazine about the creative band of teenagers, the slang term soon spread amongst Grateful Dead fans who popularized 4:20 PM as the time to smoke marijuana.

The time of day soon morphed into a date, April 20th. Over the years, the date and the slang term have become symbolically associated with cannabis culture. April 20th is now a day of celebrations when marijuana smokers all over the world come together and protest the local laws and regulations that still severely limit how people are allowed to enjoy the benefits of the medicinal herb. Steve DeAngelo, cannabis activist and founder of California's Harborside Health Center, commented on the progress made by the worldwide marijuana legalization movements by saying, "even if our activist work were complete, 420 morphs from a statement of conscience to a celebration of acceptance, a celebration of victory, a celebration of our amazing connection with this plant."

To present Dank Cannabis’s viewpoint, a spokesperson for the Parkdale location of their dispensary says, “420 is more than just a day to stay indoors and get high. It is the culmination of a generations-long struggle that has seen many people being oppressed for their choice to engage with marijuana. Now, because of their efforts, we can freely light up cannabis without the fear of being imprisoned or fined. When you decide to smoke on 420 you are participating in a worldwide movement that not only remembers the sacrifices that were made along the way to get to this point but it also aims to change current myopic outlooks on the herb which lead those that enjoy smoking it to get ostracized to some extent. So it is bigger than you and it is bigger than us. For this reason, we have been taking this holiday very seriously since we opened up shop in Calgary. This year is extra special as it is the first 420 since the passing of Alberta’s Bill 80, the Red Tape Reduction Implementation Act of 2021. The bill allowed private retailers such as Dank Cannabis to make online sales of cannabis. We also began home deliveries to our treasured Calgary customers who can now order everything they need to make this 420 special without having to leave their house. We are paying special attention to our online infrastructure and logistics to make sure that all orders before and on the holiday go through seamlessly and our delivery experts can get you what you need in time. We are leaving no stone unturned to make this 420 the best one yet in Dank Cannabis’s history.”
