Safety meetings

Here’s a look at a few cannabis events happening around the state this month.

Four Twenty-Too

On a quiet and smoky Sunday afternoon, Eden Rose and Oklahoma Gazette got together at the Dirty Reggae Punx practice space. From there, the idea of doing ongoing (and free) lowkey shows for the community was born. The first, Halfway to 420, in mid-February was a blast, so we’ve decided to do it again with Four Twenty-Too. No promises but no cover (except if you want to donate to the bands). Come by the corner of NW 28th St. and May Avenue at 6:30 p.m. on April 22, hang out and share whatever we have to offer (last time we had some pizza and beer). Feel free to bring your stash along if you have a patient license.

Chronic Palooza

Chronic Palooza returns to Crossroads Mall, 7000 Crossroads Blvd., this year with its sprawling, carnival atmosphere of cannabis celebration. Originally held at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds and held last year in El Reno, Crossroads has always seemed like its rightful location, with plenty of vendors, food, live music and food trucks to satisfy whatever desires your stoned brain conjures. This year, they’ll also have live wrestling and a slap fight competition. The event will be held April 22 and 23. A patient license isn’t required to attend, only to consume cannabis on site. Admission is $15 each day.

Devin the Dude at Beer City Music Hall

While celebrities lending their names and likenesses to cannabis products certainly isn’t a new thing, Devin the Dude been part of cannabis culture since the debut of his first album, The Dude, so it’s no surprise that there’s a strain — Lacville79 — named after one of his most popular songs. This Houston rapper has been living it longer than some of his audience has been alive and always puts on a great show, so catch him at Beer City Music Hall on April 22. Jabee, Wavy Baby and Doughboy Dev share the bill.

Puff & Paint

While the first full-fledged cannabis event at 3130 Event Center, 3130 N May Ave., has already passed (and you missed out) and the next one in an ongoing monthly series not yet announced, there’s an ongoing monthly smoke sesh and painting class taking place each month to tide you over. The next will be held May 5 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Tickets are $50 and a patient license is required to consume onsite.

The Blazed Ball

If you’re in Tulsa for this year’s weed season, drop into Sesh Lounge, 7737 E 42nd Place, on April 29 for The Blazed Ball. Tulsa’s cannabis events have always given OKC’s a run for their money, and this spiffed-up affair thrown by Blazed Burlesque will have live music as well as dancers. Formal attire is suggested, but pinkies out when passing the blunt isn’t required. Tickets are $30 for GA and $60 for VIP at the door.
