This 420, you can finally legally blaze it—responsibly, of course.
It’s been a big year for marijuana in Arizona. This year’s 420 holds a special significance, given it’s the first time Arizonans are now able to celebrate the holiday with legalized recreational marijuana.
Dispensaries and smoke shops are celebrating with a slew of events on Tuesday, April 20, and the days leading up to and following the stoner holiday. Remember to partake responsibly and that only adults 21 and older can legally purchase weed.
Here are just a few of the celebrations across the Valley this year:
Arizona Organix is keeping the details of their 420 event under wraps, but the Glendale dispensary promised on Instagram that it’ll be a “celebration like we’ve never done before.”
Stoner-themed sub shop Cheba Hut will celebrate 420 all day by offering their “nug” (small) sandwich with chips and drinks for the price of $4.20. Plus, it’s served on a souvenir Frisbee. They’ll also offer giveaways and other specials at all six locations.
The Flower Shop
All three Flower Shop locations will celebrate with giveaways, vendors, food trucks, music, and more on Tuesday.
Giving Tree Dispensary
Phoenix’s Giving Tree Dispensary will offer discounts and freebies all day. Specials include 25% off Good Things Coming edibles, 20% off Big Bud Farms products, and buy one, get one free deals on Copperstate cartridges. Plus, the first 75 in-store customers that spend $42 or more will get a free swag bag to mark the occasion.
Harvest House of Cannabis
Harvest House of Cannabis will be giving away free Venom vapes to the first 100 customers on Tuesday. They’ll also be offering 30% off Baked bros edibles to all medicinal customers, 20% off Timeless vapes, and more. All customers will get a free magnet and sticker with any purchase.
HQ Vape & Smoke
Tempe’s HQ Vape & Smoke is celebrating 420 all month long with daily discounts. The discount list is long, but includes things like at least 25% off all grinders, 40% off locally-produced glass items, and more. Plus, customers get a chance to spin a prize wheel.
Phoenix’s Marigold Dispensary is going hard on 420 with discounts on everything from resin, cartridges, and concentrates. They’ll have raffles for buying from participating brands like 22Red, Big buds, HighGradeAZ, and SelectTHC. DJs will be on-hand from 4 to 7 p.m., and anyone who’s there at 4:20 p.m. will get free food from Hot Bamboo.
The Mint Dispensary
The Mint Dispensary is going hard this 420 by giving away a new Ford Mustang GT. All three locations will have celebrations on Tuesday, including games, cannabis-themed giveaways, and more. Just make a purchase at any Mint location ahead of Tuesday for entry into the drawing. The winner of the Mustang will be announced at the Phoenix location at—you guessed it— 4:20 p.m. If you win, just remember it’s not legal to smoke and get behind the wheel.
Sky High Smoke Shop
Temp’s Sky High Smoke Shop is celebrating with two days of fun. All three locations will kick off the two-day 420 Fest on Monday with 50% off practically everything in the store from 8 a.m. to 4:20 p.m., excluding tobacco and other select items. After that, it’ll drop to 35% off for the rest of the day. Then, on Tuesday, they’ll have buy one, get one free deals until 4:20 p.m., and then the discount will drop to 35%. Plus, Sky High will offer 25% off select vaporizers on both days. They’ll also be giving away free t-shirts and goodie bags for anyone who spends more than $50.
