WHAT THE F*CK ARE THE 420 GAMES?
In short, The 420 Games is a series of athletic events formed to help de-stigmatize the holistic, healthy, and responsible people that use marijuana in a positive manner. Just because someone has a glass or two of wine in the evening does not make them a drunk. In turn, just because someone uses marijuana does not correlate to mean they are a stoner. They plan to begin proving this via a series of athletic events. Their first event is a 5K run at Golden Gate Park on Sept 13th. After the September 13th event in SF, they have several other events around California including a stand up paddle board event in Lake Tahoe, a “cruiser bike marathon” in Orange County, an Urban Decathlon in San Diego and a half-marathon in San Jose. In 2015, they’re going national.
