With 4/20 just days away and a no-nonsense stay-away order in place from the Mayor and SFPD, 420 Hippie Hill and the event's other sponsors and partners are lining up a day of festive programming for marijuana enthusiasts to enjoy from their couches.

420 Hippie Hill announced their cancellation just days into the shelter-in-place order, but organizer Alex Aquino worked to line up alternative live programming since then.

One lineup, hosted by Weedmaps, will stream live from noon to 5 p.m.

The Weedmaps show, "Higher Together," will include a headlining DJ set by Wiz Kalifah, as well as appearances by Berner, Billy Ray Cyrus, Joey CoCo Diaz, Ari Lennox, Stephen Marley, Tycho, Dave East, Cam'ron, Alchemist, Tony Hinchcliffe, Chaunte Wayans, and Kitty Cash.

Proceeds from the streaming show's donation drive will benefit the Last Prisoners Project.

There's also the Great American Sesh In, whose proceeds will benefit Direct Relief, for COVID-19 first responders.

The Sesh In will feature "artists and musicians, comedians [and] industry luminaries," with performances from B-Real, Tommy Chong, Rob Garza, A-1, Beebs, Big Light, Boyfriend, David Gans, DJ Airwolf, DJ Shortkut, Geographer, Roots of Creation and more. Tune in all day to catch the live stream.

Berner's On Haight, the Upper Haight's only marijuana dispensary, will be open during regular hours but is encouraging patrons to stay home and order online.

A representative from Berner's said 4/20 specials were still to-be-announced, but would likely include some luxury swag bags, package deals, or luxury boxes.
