April 20 marks an important day for those who celebrate all things marijuana.

The date of 4/20 has been synonymous with marijuana for decades. The origin of the hazy “420” day can be traced back to a group of California teens in the 1970s who enjoyed the green bud.

While recreational marijuana use is illegal in Texas, there are certain people who qualify for medicinal pot use. Beyond that, CBD derived from hemp that contains less than 0.3% THC is legal in the Lone Star State.

Halfway to Halloween Party at Martin House Brewing Company
