Vancouver’s 24th annual 420 protest and farmer’s market drew record crowds despite City opposition.

Event organizers promoted free and uninhibited cannabis use by handing out free joints, denouncing government involvement in regulating the industry, and changing our national anthem to “O Cannabis.”

Vendors and attendees were in high spirits as they rang in 4:20 pm with a cloud of smoke.

Vancouver Police estimate approximately 40,000 people were at Sunset Beach at the event’s peak.

Grow was on the scene to capture the highlights.
