With the country adhering to shelter-in-place practices, many within the cannabis community and weed culture openly worried about what would happen to their favorite day of the year: 4/20.
On Monday, April 20, Weedmaps is celebrating 4/20 by hosting “Higher Together: Sessions from Home,” a live-streamed event with exclusive concerts, comedic stand-up sets, artist interviews and smoke sessions to celebrate 4/20.
Since announcing the live stream, we've been receiving some questions about some of the logistics of the event. Considering these types of virtual experiences are new and constantly evolving since we've all adapted to online events, we've decided to put together a quick guide on how to stream and not miss out on the biggest 4/20 virtual celebration.

How much does it cost to watch?
Nothing. It's completely free to stream.
Weedmaps has teamed up with the Last Prisoner Project, a coalition dedicated to bringing restorative justice to the cannabis industry, to highlight their efforts as well as to host a donation drive.
Additionally, the Minority Cannabis Business Association (MCBA) and Minorities for Medical Marijuana (M4MM) will have messages during the live stream.
The answer: 4/20 is an important time within the cannabis community. It's not only a cultural celebration for weed, but it's a chance to look back at how far we've come since the days of prohibition and remember all the hard, difficult work that lies ahead in expanding access to cannabis for all.
Also: It's a party! We know y'all are cooped up inside, missing the act of going to concerts and comedy shows and burning one with our friends. We are, too! This is a chance to see some of your favorite artists, donate to some great causes, and spark one up with your cannabis community, including Smokers Club, Cookies, and Weedmaps. Tune out all the noise and tune in with us.
