Highland Network started the Thailand 420 music festival seven years ago. It starts today and is sure to go down in history. The two-day party celebrates the fact that cannabis is no longer illegal in the country as of yesterday.

Thailand 420: Legalaew is a big step in history because it means that Thailand will be the first country in Asia to legalize marijuana. As of June 9, 2022, marijuana will no longer be on the list of drugs that are illegal.

The law also says that anyone who made, imported, exported, owned, sold, or used cannabis before June 9 is no longer a criminal or a person who has been convicted of a crime. This means that more than 4,000 people will be let out of Thai prisons, giving us even more reason to party.

The event, which was organized by cannabis organization Highland and other legalization campaigners, took place at a man-made beach in Nakhom Pathom’s Nakhon Chai Si district — which is only a one-hour drive from the central business area of Bangkok. There was a lot of purple haze present during the event.

The first day of the festival was ruined by a severe rainfall on Saturday evening, which was followed by mudslides that were on par with those that occurred at Woodstock. The event started back up again on Sunday on a windy but dry evening.

In addition to concerts spanning three distinct musical genres, attendees can also participate in 420-themed games, engage in extreme sports, attend discussions and workshops on how to cultivate their own cannabis, and buy till they drop. It was the very first time cannabis was sold in that location.
