The 420 Games in San Francisco were a huge success this last Saturday. Golden Gate Park was alive with the energy from the runners participating in the event. Lagunitas Brewing Company kept the beer flowing and Pato Banton rocked the house with his legendary reggae sound. Members of Smoke Reports had an incredible time running in 4.2 mile race, and enjoyed meeting many incredibly interesting members of the cannabis community.
Jim McApline, the driving force behind the 420 Games, hopes to put an end to the lazy “stoner” stereotype. McAlpine, who founded the ski pass lifestyle company SnowBomb, uses these games to foster an environment where adults can responsibly use cannabis in an active setting.
The 4.20 Fun Run in San Francisco is one of many cannabis-infused events hosted by the 420 Games. So far events have taken place in Oregon, Washington, and Colorado. Here are some of their upcoming California events:
- August 29th, 2015: San Jose, CA 420 Gold Tournament
- September 26th, 2015: Lake Tahoe, CA 420 SUP Race
- October 24th, 2015: Orange County 26 Mile Cruiser Race
Smoke Reports is happy to take part in these events, where sponsors like Pure Cure and Sensi Chews host informational booths to help educate the public. All of the participants did a really good job of remaining respectful and not consuming cannabis openly. People of all ages attended the event, and everyone had a wonderful time.
