For years now, Marijuana enthusiasts have adopted April 20th as their own holiday. This year they celebrate in style with a worldwide screening of How Weed Won the West with its LA screening at Paramount Studios and a 30,000-march in Toronto, Canada.

The films poster art depicts an Old West scene with a twist - the DEA is the outlaw and he's entering a dispensary instead of a saloon.

The largest screening the organizers plan to have includes a 30,000-person march before the Toronto Screening that will end at the theatre which will have a double feature of both of Booth’s films.

April 20th has grown into a counter-culture holiday, in which marijuana enthusiasts gather to celebrate and consume cannabis. This year is rumored to be the largest celebration to date including over 30 worldwide screenings of a feature-length documentary, How Weed Won the West.

April 20th represents 420, which is a code that quickly became popular with cannabis consumers after a group of San Rafael High School students (back in the 70’s) used that number to signal the time they would meet to smoke pot while on a scavenger hunt for an unguarded cannabis grow near Point Reyes.

The producers of Showtime’s American Drug War have finished their latest documentary which follows the stories of a handful of medical marijuana patients who are not on their death beds, including a prosecuted collective operator, a former female wrestler, a founder of GGECO University, and the cultivators of Pineapple Kush.

The Director, Kevin Booth, takes viewers on a guided journey through the billion-dollar world of California Cannabis production with host Alex Jones, famed InfoWars creator and radio personality.

And in true Hollywood fashion, the LA screening will be the most glamorous of viewings which will be shown at Paramount Studios at 7pm on Tuesday April 20. Tickets must be purchased in advance for this screening due to security measures required to enter the front gates of the historic studio.

The largest screening the organizers plan to have includes a 30,000-person march before the Toronto Screening that will end at the theatre which will have a double feature of both of Booth’s films.

Other American screenings on the same day at the same time include: New York; Clifton Park, NY; Buffalo, NY; Juno, AK; Hemet, CA; Long Beach, CA; San Diego, CA; Morris, MN; Missoula, MT; Boulder, CO; Detroit, MI; East Lansing, MI; Cincinnati, OH; Austin, TX; Houston, TX; Asbury Park, NJ

Other international screenings on the same day include: British Columbia, Canada; Calgary, Canada; Dublin, Ireland; Belfast, Northern Ireland; Hereford, UK; Yorkshire, UK; Sfantu Gheorghe, Romania

The film starts in the heavily guarded fields of Northern California’s Emerald Triangle where the long time growers of “Pineapple Kush” make the transition into the legal world of Medical Marijuana. The film ends with a recent LA city council ruling that attempts to close most of the city’s storefront collectives.

The worldwide screening How Weed Won the West is presented by Sacred Cow Productions and sponsored by Advanced Nutrients, Bill Kroger Marijuana law firm, Pineapple Kush, GGECKO University, Apothecary Genetics , Grow Goddess LED lights, and Medical Marijuana inc.
