This Arizona Couple's Wedding Proves 4/20 is a Day for Celebration

While 4/20 is mostly recognized as a day for celebrating cannabis culture, for one cannabis-loving couple, the day is even more special. Crystal Lara and Anthony Torres were married this past 4/20, holding their wedding ceremony at an Arizona marijuana dispensary at 4:20pm.

Cannabis has long been a part of their relationship and the couple said it is often used as a means to cope with the stresses they've experiences over the years. Two of their four children have disabilities and Torres is a veteran of the US Army. Lara herself works at the dispensary that hosted their wedding. 

While Arizona law prevented the bride and groom from supplying friends and family who attended the celebration with cannabis-infused goodies, Lara did walk down the aisle with a cannabis bouquet.

You can see some of the highlights from Lara and Torres' 4/20 wedding in the video from Mashable below.


Because it has been illegal or stigmatized for decades, the body of cannabis research available is, in many ways, incomplete. But Canada’s federal government is taking advantage of the country’s status as the only G7 country to have legalized marijuana and addressing that issue. It was announced yesterday that nearly 25 million dollars will be used to fund cannabis research in Canada.
