HALF A MILLION Illinois residents recently received nearly 500,000 expungements of low-level cannabis convictions, which were signed off by Governor JB Pritzker. Under the state’s Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act, officials promised that non-felony cannabis arrest records from 2013 to 2019, totaling 47,000 eligible cases, would be cleared by January 1, 2021. By 2025, the state is expected to be up and running with automatic expungement. Illinois is now well ahead of schedule, having already reached 492,129 expungements. Some counties, though, have their work cut out for them and still have to deal with their own convictions by issuing local expungements by 2025. Other counties, including DuPage, Kane, Knox, Lake, McHenry, McLean, Peoria, Rock Island, Will and Winnebago, already have their records expunged. Additionally, Governor Pritzker issued nearly 10,000 pardons for…

holy high day!

This is now the second April we’ve spent in the middle of a global pandemic. Although vaccines are now being distributed and the numbers are better compared with those during the major holidays at the end of 2020, chances are that many of us will be spending this 4/20 similarly to how we did last year, which is safe at home. Bah-humbug. So, like last year, chances are you won’t be hitting up some of the most iconic annual 4/20 in-person events because… well, nearly all of them are still cancelled. You won’t be gathering with 20 of your closest friends to try and overdose on weed like you did back in the glory days of 2019 or any other normal year. And you won’t be feasting at your favorite all-you-can-eat…

4/20 FOREVER It’s been over a year since COVID-19 happened, but it’s also been a whole year since any of us have been able to attend a 4/20 event. I’m sure I’m not the only one out there that is having withdrawals about this, right? It’s been a rough 12-plus months, and all I want is to smell the scent of freshly burned weed in the air while I walk around a crowded place (ideally with no mask on) to peruse the booths and end the day with a bad-ass concert. Here’s to hoping that 4/20 in 2022 will be a little more normal. —Daniel California RESPONSE: Believe us when we say we are just as disappointed as you are. To have not just one but two years without those huge, amazing weed…

Welcome back to the “Twenty22Many Veteran Chronicles” and the most celebrated month of High Times. It’s the 4/20 issue! I can’t think of a better or more well-known veteran and cannabis activist to interview than the notorious Charles Edward Lepp, otherwise known as Eddy Lepp. Coming in from the Golden State of California, Lepp has been an activist for veterans, patients, prisoners and cannabis for decades. Consuming cannabis is especially important for him as well. During the acquisition of this interview, which took numerous months to coordinate, Lepp has been in and out of radiation therapy and is fighting to survive cancer. And just like it did for his father, medical cannabis is helping him in the fight for his life. For those who aren’t familiar with Lepp and his work,…

empire state endgame

NEWS PRETTY IN PINK Doja Cat reveals the origin behind her stage name. p.28 ENTERTAINMENT DOWN WITH THE DANKNESS Disturbed frontman David Draiman discusses weed and music amid COVID-19. p.34 The political powers that be in New York State are competing for the winning version of a comprehensive recreational cannabis bill. On January 6, New York’s governor, Andrew Cuomo, announced his bill to legalize recreational cannabis in the Empire State—the latest of several of the governor’s proposals to be introduced. Cuomo’s reintroduced version would fall within the state budget and establish an updated Office of Cannabis Management, which would oversee both the recreational and medical cannabis programs. If approved, it would allow adults ages 21 and older to buy cannabis at state-approved dispensaries, while generating an estimated $300 million in tax revenue for the cash-strapped state. But other…
