4/20 Is Indeed Happening on Hippie Hill for 2022, With Special Guest… Mike Tyson?

It will finally be the first 4/20 with legal cannabis sales at Golden Gate Park following the cancellation of the last two 4/20 celebrations due to COVID-19, with Bud-owner Mike Tyson appearing as a special guest.

Guys, hold on to your hash pipes because they’re notorious 4/20 on hippie hill returns for 2022, after back-to-back two COVID-19 Cancellations. And for the first time ever, the April 20 celebration lets you buy legal cannabis from licensed vendors in Golden Gate Park, a move that’s been in the works for years annual high holiday for stoners.

420 Hippie Hill is back!! Who is ready?” said the organizers of the event in a Instagram post from Saturday. “This year will be the 1st year of legal cannabis sales at the Hippie Hill Farmers Market 🌿 + VIP area.”

It was early March 2019 when San Francisco was legalized Selling and consuming cannabis at events take place outside of pharmacies. But the regulatory timeline of that legislation was too tight for April 20th at Hippie Hill this year to get the coveted approval, so the first legal cannabis sales event in San Francisco was that GrassLands section at Outside Lands 2019. The official 4/20 celebration was looming in 2020 to sell cannabis at the park, but COVID-19 has smoked that opportunity out of both 2020 and 2021, as has the Robin Williams Meadow area cordoned off and had sprinklers in operation to make sure the hippies couldn’t take their mound.

In fact, the promoter behind this now official, permitted event announced in early February that the pot party at the park would be back. They tagged several cannabis brands in this post, presumably the ones that should be in the park that day. the Pharmacy chain Stiiizy and online retail platform Weedmaps both confirmed their planned participation in the comments section of this post.

But now we have more details on which cast members are booked and like the 4/20 event itselfthe biggest name has quite a colorful past.

You may not know Mike Tyson is now in the grass game, and its latest product has left much of the cannabis world a little less than happy with it. These are Cannabis-infused ear-shaped gummy bears called Mike’s Bites, a reference to his 1997 ear-biting incident with Evander Holyfield. Tyson’s role as entertainer at the 4/20 event is not clarified in the announcement.

But another listed co-headliner is Berner, the local stoner-rap icon who was instrumental in the development of 4/20 at Hippie Hill to an official, sanctioned event. Other acts announced include comics Hannibal Buress and Jeff Ross, and DJs Shortkut and Jah Yzer.

The 4/20 event at Golden Gate Park had frankly has long been a threatoften leaving behind 20,000 pounds of trash, despite growing into one of the biggest cannabis events in the world. But the traditionally unlawful event was First approved in 2017and had until 2019 figured out how to leave the park pristine.

The announcement has few details, but enough to get an idea of ​​what the first legal pot sales will be like in 4/20. The announcement says 21+, so clearly they’ll be checking ID to enter the party. The announcement also describes it as a “free event,” as has traditionally been (although some jokers have been sold in the past $20 worth of scam tickets), but we also see some sort of “VIP area” that probably costs entry.

And like Outside Lands, legal cannabis sales probably won’t be available throughout the park. You will likely be restricted to a specific, closed area, dubbed the “Hippie Hill Farmers Market” by the organizers, for regulatory compliance reasons.

And that’s the rub of this event. His most iconic annual moment is the 4:20 countdown, seen above, where the entire Robin Williams Meadow goes up in smoke. It’s incredible to think that 4/20 revelers will politely escort themselves to this designated area – people will be setting the whole park ablaze at that moment. Certainly no one present that day will complain about smoking in Golden Gate Park. But it can cause complaints that the 4/20 crowd doesn’t comply when they smoke their sticky ecky.

And FYI, April 20th falls on a Wednesday this year. The official 4/20 Hippie Hill Celebration is scheduled from 9am to 5pm that day.
