420 Day Events and Music

420
April 20 is the unofficial global day of celebration for cannabis aficionados. I don’t use marijuana but I recognize its benefits and I support its legality. If you’re a music fan, you already know it’s an important source of creativity and comfort for so many talented musicians and there is no lack of musical homage to it throughout the years! Here’s a list of some 420 events throughout LA today and some music, from well-known US hits to some songs from around the world. Much of the list is from Latin America, our southern neighbors. I love discovering new music and would love to find more music about marijuana from Africa, Asia and Europe! If you know any, post them in the comments! As marijuana and music are synonymous, it’s also Record Store Day today too! You can find celebrating venues here.
