This 4/20 was a monumental one for stoners in New York City. This was the first 420 Day after Governor Al Cuomo announced marijuana legalized in New York State. While it was certainly a time for partying, it was also a chance to address many economic and legal issues that have plagued marijuana prohibition. It was under this political climate that the National Cannabis Freedom Festival (NCFF) held its first post-legalization event in NYC.
The influence of Hispanics on the metal scene was on full display that night and will no doubt continue if bands like Elefantkiller, Arka and Introtyl continue to decimate stereotypes.
