We all know the 420 drill. Hit the water pipe and get zooted. But what else? How do you elevate your experience? Here are ten ways we like to make our 420 a bit more fun.
Brownies, cookies, ice cream, cake, oh my!
Pinterest is a useful tool for this exact endeavor. Look up some recipes, pick a few, and get the ingredients. Your high self will thank you. Or if you're not a make it from scratch person, like a lot of us, boxed mixed or even buying goods from a bakery is a great alternative.
2. ROAD TRIP TO A LEGAL STATE

Here's a full list of legal states: Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California, Utah, Nevada, Colorado, Alaska, Montana, South Dakota, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, District of Columbia, Maine, Massachusetts, and Vermont.
3. TAKE A HIKE
Find the nearest or coolest hiking spots near you and enjoy nature. There's nothing like a slow afternoon hiking to a beautiful spot to get your spirits lifted. This 420 it may be just what you need. Get the mug here. Find a hiking trail here.
4. HOST A CRAFT PARTY
Painting, coloring, clay modeling, making jewelry, or frames while high is a fun experience. Just be careful with supplies that can cause bodily harm.
Another fun idea: get a science kit in the kids section at stores is also a great activity. A personal favorite is the slime kit.
5. LEARN TO ROLL THE PERFECT JOINT
As they say, practice makes perfect. Watching youtube tutorials really does help. If that doesn't work for you, maybe it's time to try a cigarette roller! The Honeypuff Kit has one included.
6. SMOKE WITH A FIRST TIMER
Your first time is something you never forget. I remember the first time I smoked with my sister. I'm a seasoned smoker, but she was a virgin (so to speak - don't kill me, sis). She asked if we could smoke together, and after I picked my jaw up from the floor I pulled out a bowl and taught her how. The giggles and munchies that ensued... man, that was bonding and I'll never forget it.
