Hello everyone and welcome to our April Members Update.

This monthly post is to keep you informed about what’s been going on behind the scenes at 420 Magazine during the last few weeks, introducing you to our valued new and renewing sponsors and highlighting our monthly contest winners.

Firstly, may we wish all our members and guests, and their families and friends, health and safety. And remember – Everything will be alright in the end. And if it’s not alright, it’s not the end.

We continue to see a huge influx of new members. “Welcome!” to you all.

You have joined the friendliest, most mature and comprehensive Cannabis and Hemp website in the world. In return we’d simply ask that you spend a few moments reading our Posting Guidelines. It helps us no end if you can stick to these: it reduces the time we need to spend moderating and advising, allowing us the space to continue maintaining, developing and adding to the website itself.

We’ve also added a handy shortlist of links which answer the most common “how to” questions about posting and to help you get the most out of 420 Magazine. Helpful Links For New Members

And why not post a little bit about yourself in our Introduce Yourself thread? It’s a great way to start conversations and get initial guidance.

As we do every month, we’d like to extend our special thanks to those members who take the time and trouble to voluntarily welcome members who introduce themselves. They show and share great 420 Magazine positive vibes. Many of you also help us by reporting spam and other infractions, which is much appreciated as we cannot be everywhere. Your support does not go unnoticed. Thank you all!

We would also like to thank those members who take a moment to report the spammers and spambots, trying to take advantage of 420 Magazine’s reach at the expense of our paying sponsors and our members. It’s a great help to our busy team when you see and report such activity. Just remember – one report per spammer please. Multiple reports on multiple posts of the same spammer from the same member actually increases our workload in the back. We can quickly find everything we need from a single report.

To blow our own trumpet, we’re delighted to tell you that April 20 2020 marks our 27th birthday, fighting for freedom of our cannabis rights. Much has changed, but there remains still much to do.

Also on the subject of 420 Magazine, we are moving to a new location all through this month. Our landlord is selling the property. Please be patient as some things could get delayed during this process.

We always say that we wouldn’t be here without our Sponsors, however it’s equally true that 420 Magazine wouldn’t be such a great mission without you, our members. We are always grateful for your presence, contributions, positive energy and spirit of helping others.
