Bob Weir Arranges Super Stony Surprise Meeting

Call it stoner folklore if you want, but by now most people have heard the tale of how the term “420” originated.

In the ’70s, a group of five friends from San Rafael High School, who called themselves the Waldos, would meet up daily at 4:20 p.m. to light up. By 1990, a mysterious flyer promoting 420 began circulating at Grateful Dead shows, and in 1991, HIGH TIMES published the text from that mysterious flyer—forever cementing April 20 (4/20) as the highest of holidays.

Fast forward four decades, and the entire 420-Waldos-Grateful Dead tale has come full circle.

The HIGH TIMES Interview: Ludacris

Grammy Award–winning Christopher Bridges, a.k.a. Ludacris, cut his teeth in the music industry as an influential “Dirty South” rapper. Yet in his remarkable nearly 20-year-long career, Ludacris has achieved mainstream success as both a musician and an actor, appearing in hit movies like Crash, Hustle & Flow, and the Fast and the Furious series. Given that he’s an avid smoker—as evidenced by his hazy “Blueberry Yum Yum” video from the album The Red Light District—HIGH TIMES couldn’t wait to get Ludacris to perform at a Cannabis Cup. Fortunately, the Atlanta-based artist was able to join us in Las Vegas, where we caught up with him just before show time.

You perform in Amsterdam. What do you think of the cannabis scene there?

Amsterdam no longer has the best weed in the world. I’m going to have to give that to Los Angeles, California … in the world.

Al Sharpton Calls for More Diversity in Pot Industry

In the lead-up to the fourth annual Cannabis World Congress Business (CWCB) Exposition in New York City on Friday, Rev. Al Sharpton had strong words for the cannabis industry.

Sharpton, a famous civil rights activist and political commentator known for (and sometimes criticized for) his left-leaning views on race, said that people of color need to do more to break into the industry.

According to the Huffington Post, Sharpton said that “Just because I don’t use marijuana as a minister, does not mean I have the right to impose my moral values on others. However, I will challenge the cannabis industry and its distributors in states where it is legal to support civil rights movements and ensure that we are not disproportionately excluded from business opportunities.”
