Several months after legal recreational marijuana sales began in Arizona, dispensaries and cannabis-related stores are celebrating April 20 — also known as 420 — in a big way this year.
Many shops across metro Phoenix will commemorate the day with giveaways, raffles and sales on merchandise. Territory Dispensary is even hosting an “adult Easter egg hunt.”
Arizona Organix, which calls itself the state’s first licensed medical marijuana dispensary, recommends buying cannabis early. That’s why you will see some dispensaries offering deals throughout the weekend leading up to April 20.
The dispensary also recommends that consumers don’t test their limits.
“Make sure to spend the holiday consuming in moderation,” Organix’s blog reads. “You should start at low amounts and potencies and slowly work your way up.”
