Nine Places to Celebrate 4/20 in Phoenix

Friday is going to be like Christmas to potheads, reefer cats, or anyone who's a fan of marijuana or culture surrounding the drug. It's April 20th, better known as the stoner anti-holiday of Four Twenty (or 4/20).

It means not only will the canabis-loving crowd be celebrating their love of the leaf, but some of their favorite businesses will be holding special sales or presenting 4/20-themed fiestas with tons of free schwag and free eats (wink, wink). Special events and seminars are also being put on by legal pot dispensaries (who have reason to celebrate now that the medical marijuana law is finally going into affect) and a few bars will have their own 4/20 parties.

So if you're looking to get fired up on Friday and publically share your love affair with Mary Jane, here are a few places to do so.
