420 Magazine Website News: January 2018

Firstly, we’d like to wish you a happy and Hempy New Year. 2018 is set to be a momentous year for 420 Magazine. It will be our 25th year, making us the oldest as well as the most respected Cannabis and Hemp website in the world. Many others have come and gone, but thanks to our sponsors, our staff and of course you, our members, 420 Magazine continues to spread the word, support worldwide legalization and provide forums for medical knowledge sharing, whether that be news, events, activism and of course growing.

What’s more, we’re going to be celebrating our 25 years with some wonderful changes to 420 Magazine, moving the website up to the next level. You will have an even better experience, whether you’re on a PC, a Mac or a mobile device. We are so excited – we have what’s probably the very best team of staffers that the magazine has ever had, and we’re working tirelessly behind the scenes with specialist professionals to rack up 420 Magazine’s presence in both the virtual and real worlds.

Watch out for some substantial announcements in the New Year!

Meanwhile, across December, our teams of Moderators, Spambot Patrollers and Reviewers have continued to monitor and add to the content and to the 420 Magazine experience. Spam is eliminated around the clock, trolls quietly and carefully dealt with and news and reviews are added daily. We are grateful to every single one of our team for their time and dedication to our Mission.

If you are a fresh face here, please do take a moment and read our Posting Guidelines. They are there to help and protect you and to keep 420 Magazine full of the spirit of knowledge-sharing, friendship and good vibes that we all work so hard to preserve.

If you are a more established member, we’d remind you to check our Home Page regularly. Many of us can get into the habit of just sticking to the journals, however on the Home Page you’ll find all the most recent news and announcements, reviews and warrior profiles as well as articles celebrating our contest-winning members and generous sponsors.

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. Fallen Warrior
We were deeply saddened to hear of the death of one of long-term members and peerless MMJ warrior, James “Jim” Lacquement aka CajunCelt, at the age of just 49.

We have acknowledged Jim’s life and work with a fulsome obituary, where anyone who knew him or has read his work here on 420 Magazine is welcome to pay their respects.

You don’t have to be an experienced grower to enter – any member with a minimum of 50 posts may enter and vote in those with polls. There are some great prizes to win – exclusive 420 Magazine merchandise such as nug jars, t-shirts, lighters, magnets (which you can’t get hold of any other way), and some quality and high value goods from our sponsors too; lights, nutrients, vaporizers, seeds, gift certificates and much more.

And for the New Year we have revamped and renamed our Creme de la Creme Photo Contest to make it much simpler and more accessible. Why not look out your very best single Cannabis photograph and enter it!

This now being January, our Annual Contests are also up and running.

Here you’ll find all the monthly winners gathered for our membership to vote on the very best of the best. Do check them out and, if you have over 50 posts, cast your vote in the annual contests. Thanks to our sponsors, there are extra prizes available in all of them.

So if you fancy picking up a garden-full of great prizes, or just enjoy looking at some of the most beautiful plants and nugs produced on the planet, do check out our contests. They are fun and inspirational.
