April 20, also known as “4/20,” is a day celebrated by cannabis enthusiasts across the U.S., including here in Sacramento.
However, this year’s 4/20 arrives as the County of Sacramento’s “stay-at-home order” — to prevent the spread of COVID-19 — remains in effect.
While the County’s public-health order does not prohibit dispensaries, delivery services and other cannabis businesses from operating, it does prohibit the gatherings of groups and other activities traditional to the celebration.
“If you’re planning to celebrate 4/20 this Monday, please remember to do it responsibly and in accordance with the State and County public health orders,” said Davina Smith, head of the City’s Office of Cannabis Management. “Many businesses offer home delivery or curbside pick-up. And if you are required to wait in line, remember to practice social distancing by standing at least six feet apart.”
