Over at Oaksterdam, NORML is running a raid benefit:
The Oaksterdam 4/20 Film Festival will raise funds for OU and CaNORML in the first post-raid event at the Oakland Medical Marijuana University, premiering two new films "California 90420" and "The Green Goddess".
Doors open at 3 p.m. for the event, which will take place at Oaksterdam University, 1600 Broadway in Oakland. Suggested donation for the festival is $10, which can be made at the door or in advance by visiting CANORML.org
Elsewhere around the Bay, your options include:
- the 4/20 Stones Throw Showcase with Dam Funk at 103 Harriet.
- the 4/20 Bake Off with Wiz Khalifa at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.
