Is it already April, Leafly Nation? So much progress has already been made since this time last year, with new states and new markets readying their engines and lifting off. The global stoner holiday of 4:20 aka 4/20 has always been about taking some time to connect with others and appreciate what we have—weed is a conduit to that camaraderie.

This year, we continue to scour the country for the best ways for you to use this 4/20 weekend to have the headiest day possible; and thanks to the leap year, no sick days needed.
