Pot Party In The Park

Victoria Park (4-20)Last year 4/20 in Regina coincided with the Saturday of Juno Award weekend. With scads of musicians and music fans in town from all over Canada that could have made for a pretty sweet rally.

Unfortunately, it also coincided with an incredibly late spring so there was about three feet of snow on the ground in Victoria Park and the temps were in the sub-zero range. Today, as you can see from the above photo, things were somewhat greener and warmer (and smokier).

If you haven’t read it already, we had a major feature on marijuana in our April 17 issue that explored issues related to both medical and recreational use. 4/20 is a pro-marijuana rally that’s been held on this date in cities around the world since 1995. The largest Canadian rally is typically in Vancouver. But there was a pretty decent turnout on Parliament Hill in Ottawa today too.

  1. I’m confused. Is the above comment meant to be an example of the ridiculous crap you’ll buy when you’re high?

  2. My fav part of the occaision was watching the CTV camera guy take a few puffs out of some dude’s granny smith “pipe”, just after he had filmed the dude smoking from the fruit.

    How much does it cost to have 14 coppers & fuel for 8 “patrol cars” to watch friendly peeps enjoy some sunshine & lawn on a “holiday” Sunday?

    $1800.00/hr?
