For some people, today is just another normal Wednesday. Another day to get up, go to the office, and take part in the slog that is the typical work week. But for anyone with any level of interest in weed culture (that's a fancy way of saying "smoking marijuana") today is one of the most important days of the year: Today is 4/20 aka stoner Christmas aka the unofficial holiday of smoking weed.

So if you happen to be looking for a way to celebrate this "holiday," we've dug up a few resources for you to check out. Whether you're on the hunt for a recipe, the perfect stoner beer, or a guide to must-have munchie foods, we've got you totally covered.
