By Christopher Carlson Who would have thought, that after decades of buildup, the stoner’s mecca, the Chronic’s Christmas, the most iconic cannabis moment in modern history, cancelled?
4/20 has been, and is still, our moment. It has always been the one day of the year where you didn’t have to worry about getting rolled up on while your burning one with the crew. But here we are, where they only illegal thing about smoking a joint with friends, is being with your friends.
A month of 4/20 doesn’t have to leave you smoking solo, the best part of 2020, is that its 2020. We have online options to keep you passing to the left.
Let’s check ‘em out, if you’ve got a smartphone and a connection, you don’t have to miss out.
Facebook offers its video call services for up to 8 people simultaneously, which makes for a pretty solid session. Because most people have a Facebook profile already, this is going to be the easiest set-up for a small group sesh. The only real downside is if you don’t have a Facebook account, you’re gonna get cut out. Available on Android and iPhone.
The original video chat, Skype is still a great way to get together and burn one. Your sesh can last 4 hours on Skype without having to shell out your munchies fund to do it. Not great if you’re planning on partaking from your laptop, Skype is best experienced on your phone. Available on Android and iPhone.
One to avoid, rumors of security related issues make Zoom a last-ditch option.
WhatsApp is the most secure option on the list, which if protecting your online information is important to you, is a pretty awesome feature. Downside is, though you can have as many people in a group as you’d like, only 4 people can video chat at once, meaning you’ll have to keep your circle small for this one.
