City sanctioned 420 celebrations will take place in San Francisco on Wednesday after a pandemic pause for the last two years, ABC7 reports.
Licensed cannabis vendors will be allowed to sell their products at Hippie Hill and Robin Williams Meadow for the first time ever. As a result, San Francisco authorities will only be permitting individuals 21 or older to enter the event.
"We are asking everyone who attends this event to come with excitement and happiness and a desire to have joy during the event," said Mayor London Breed. "We want people to enjoy this safely."
Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is pulling up to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park to promote a new social media app, KRON 4 reports.
Tyson is scheduled to arrive at Hippie Hill around 4 p.m. He is launching a chatroom in the app Relevnt.
“Relevnt, the ephemeral group messaging app with live pop-up chatrooms, is the place people can freely express themselves with less fear of being canceled–together we are Relevnt,” according to a press release.
Half to three-quarters of an inch of scattered showers are expected to fall in San Francisco as well as the rest of the Bay Area this week with a possibility of hail, SFGATE reports.
