MedMar Healing Center announces that they will be hosting a 4/20 medical marijuana celebration. They are inviting all members to stop by for a chance to play games, win medicinal prizes, and tour the facility to see the renovations that are under way. The 4/20 celebration will take place on Saturday, April 20th, from 10:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the MedMar Healing Center, which is located at 170 Autumn St. in San Jose.
“Our 4/20 event last year was a resounding success. Hundreds of patients with ailments ranging from cancer to chronic pain stopped by to play games and win prizes,” explains Douglas Chloupek of MedMar Healing Center. “We expect a larger turnout this year and have been preparing for months to make sure this is the best place to be in San Jose on April 20th."
Known in the marijuana community as a day dedicated to celebrating cannabis, there are conflicting reports on how 4/20 came to be associated with it at all. While there are numerous theories, some believe it all started in 1971 in San Rafael, Calif., when a group of teens called themselves the Waldos would meet up at 4:20 outside the school in order to look for an abandoned cannabis crop. Eventually 4:20 evolved to be a term that teens would use to refer to smoking marijuana in general. There are likely as many theories as to why 4/20 is the day to honor marijuana as there are people who celebrate it.
Members who stop by for the 4/20 event will have the opportunity to play a ring toss and ball toss game, with the chance to win medicinal marijuana. MedMar Healing Center is also in the process of completing a renovation of the facility. Members can take a tour to see the changes that have taken place so far, including new flooring throughout the building. The Center is also making additions to help patients, including four additional big-screen televisions, which will be used to display menus and slideshows. In addition, they are adding iPad stations throughout the building, which will be used for educational purposes, providing patients with a variety of information.
“We look forward to seeing all of our members, and we hope they make a point of stopping by to participate in the 420 fun,” added Chloupek. “It’s not every day that we get to celebrate something that brings so many people help and relief. Let’s make a point of observing medical marijuana together on 4/20.”
