For Potheads Who 
Are Feeling Pious

Swade Cannabis, multiple locations including 6166 Delmar Boulevard
Maybe you find consuming cannabis to be akin to a sacred act, or maybe you're just feeling nostalgic for the days when you'd sneak away from your parents' side at mass to smoke weed with the window cracked in the church's bathroom — whatever the case may be, Swade's Delmar location has got you covered. The Loop dispensary is housed in a renovated church building, making it one of the more unique places to purchase weed in the area. That seems to be part of a larger trend for Swade, whose flagship Grove location — itself a beautiful space, if not quite as holy — was named by Architectural Digest as one of the country's 12 Most Stylish Dispensaries in 2021. In addition to its friendly and helpful budtenders, Swade also has a touchscreen display on its sales floor through which you can peruse its menu in peace before deciding what to purchase. To that we say a hearty "amen." Swade is open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Check out their full menu at swadecannabis.com.

Green Light District Festival
Get high at the Green Light District Festival on Cherokee starting Friday, April 19 at the Cola Private Lounge (2834 Cherokee Street) for a night of laughs. From 8 to 10 p.m. the Best Medicine: Comedy, Dinner and Cannabis event will have a rotating lineup of hilarious comedians, with food from Rooted Buds to keep the munchies at bay. Doors open and dinner starts at 7 p.m. Then, on Saturday, April 20, from noon to 11 p.m. enjoy a day of markets, live concerts, DJ sets, skate demos and vendors; a scavenger hunt; classes in dance, painting and yoga; and hang out at the Cola Lounge. The real showstopper, however, will be the 4:20 Street Crawl Parade. Then, on Sunday, April 21, cool down from the weekend’s festivities with a yoga class and chef competition. General admission tickets ($20) include access to Saturday’s festival, market and live music; entry to the Cola Lounge all weekend; special discounts at participating Cherokee Street businesses; and participation in the 4:20 Street Crawl Parade.
