Do you have something going on at your dispensary? Send us a note at email@example.com
Hey there. If you’re anything like us, then you’re extremely ready for cannabis-related and cannabis-friendly events in the warmer months. Perhaps you’re even heading out to Carniroll in Western Mass this weekend.
Even indoor events sound great. Hell, anything to get out of the house. If there’s weed, that’s all the badder. I mean all the better.
As one may have expected, there are events coming up in the week leading up to and on 4-20 next Wednesday, so we thought we ought to tell you about them. And if you have one to add to the list, please be sure to send the info to firstname.lastname@example.org and please note the high holiday in the subject line.
