April 20 is, for many, the happiest day of the year.
It's said the celebration derives from a tradition of smoking cannabis at 4:20 p.m., originated in a high school San Rafael, California, and spread all over the world by the Grateful Dead.
Nowadays, people from all corners of the globe celebrate the date by gathering and smoking marijuana on April 20. As cannabis consumers became more sophisticated, so has the festivity. It's no longer just about burning blunts, but also about education, medication, exploration and community.

"The Hoodlum Ball" is a conceptual album that's being released on 4/20, produced by Ranna Royce, alongside Smith & Hay. The LP features collaborations with Cyhi The Prynce, Kxng Crooked, Eminem’s new artist Conway, Twista, Lil Windex, Riff Raff, MC Eiht of Compton's Most Wanted, and Chino XL. Check out the first cut of the album on High Times.
“Cannabis was a key factor in the creative process of The Hoodlum Ball. When I'm in the studio, it’s important for me to be as open-minded and free as possible. At times I have severe OCD that can really make me my worst enemy with my creativity. And marijuana helps me with that,” Ranna Royce told Benzinga.
Ranna Royce went through a bad high-profile breakup that helped inspire "The Hoodlum Ball." She moved to Louisville, Kentucky from Los Angeles, California and turned her pain into music.
Here's a single for your enjoyment!
