Why not roll up a big fat doobie with your sweetie and chow down on some hash wedding cake this 4/20?
Cannabis, Pot, Weed, Funk, Ganja, The Good Stuff; whatever you call it, and whatever you think about it- it has a whole day for itself.
420, as a term, was coined in California in 1971. A group of San Rafael High School students used to meet daily at 4.20pm to get stoned, and referred to toking up as 420. Little did they know that the term would become adopted globally, and years on, the 20th of April would become a kind of “Cannabis Christmas, ” for hundreds of thousands of pot-smokers worldwide.
We here at Weddy don’t condone recreational drug use as a rule, but if you and your honey do choose to partake, then what better way to celebrate your big day than by taking a pilgrimage to the spiritual home of Snop: Amsterdam.
Come 4/20, Amsterdam is party-central with thousands of tourists flocking to celebrate the reefer-friendly activities. There are pro-Pot rallies abound, and hemp enthusiasts dance in the streets to loud music that blares from speakers outside the Amsterdam City Hall. With the city-wide party atmosphere, why not consider including your wedding in the weed-fueled celebrations?
While the paperwork involved in marrying legally in Amsterdam may be a hassle, you might like to consider having a blessing and legalizing the marriage when you’re back in the UK- sans Pot.
As well as being known for it’s relaxed views on weed, Amsterdam is also renown for it’s beauty. Here are a couple of our favourite dream Dutch venues.
