It's the time of year when stoners gather for that very special smokeout in and around April 20. Our list includes more than 90 events – festivals, concerts, judging contests, hangouts and meetups – taking place over the five-day 420 holiday weekend.
Best of Cannabis award nominees included and CelebStoner.com (for Best Website), Freedom Leaf, NORML, Willie's Reserve, Americans for Safe Access and Netflix's "Disjointed."
"T2 Trainspotting" tops our list of the year's best stoner flicks. Other faves include "Rough Night," "Mary Janes: Women of Weed," "Grow House," "Icaros: A Vision" and "The Legend of 420."
CelebStoners Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg like to exchange holiday gifts. The Dogfather gave Nelson this ugly sweater emblazoned with a giant green pot leaf and a popular stoner slogan.
Snoop Dogg is a busy man these days on television. His Emmy-nominated show, "Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner" is back for a second season on VH1 and his latest series, "Snoop Dogg Present The Joker's Wild," debuted on Oct. 24 on TBS..

On the Aug. 18 episode of "Real Time with Bill Maher," Penn Jillette proclaimed that he's "the only person who's never ever had a puff of marijuana who has been been on the cover of High Times magazine." Well, not quite.
During my 20-year stint with High Times, I coordinated more than three-dozen photo shoots with celebrities, mostly musicians, including Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson, Ozzy Osbourne, Cypress Hill, Method Man, Redman and Milla Jovovich. Many are featured in the 500th issue of High Times.
A now sober Brad Pitt reveals in the current GQ cover story that "back in my stoner days, I wanted to smoke a joint with Jack, Snoop and Willie. You know, when you're a stoner you get these really stupid ideas."

There are plenty of events leading up and following the stoner high holiday, including public rallies in Denver, San Francisco, Vancouver and Toronto; music festivals in Atlanta, Miami and Washington, DC; industry events like the Cannabis Cup, New England Cannabis Convention and Southwest Cannabis Conference; and concerts featuring Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson and many more.
