HUNDREDS of pro-cannabis campaigners have said they will turn out to an annual event in Glasgow to celebrate the class-B drug.

420 Hempstock has been taking place in Glasgow Green annually and this year’s turnout looks set to be just as big as previous years’ with over 400 either confirming attendance or expressing an interest on Facebook.

Many of those in attendance will have been part of a movement to legalise cannabis for many years.

Organisers have said bands have yet to be announced, but have promised “hemp food, cbd, dabbs, stalls, banter and speeches.”

Organisers said Police Scotland and Glasgow City Council have been notified about the event.

It will take place on April 20 from noon until later on in the evening.

Keynote speakers such as Solidarity party leader Tommy Sheridan and ex-cop Jim Duffy took to the stage at a previous event.

Chris Mackenzie founded the Glasgow Cannabis Social Club in 2012.

He previously told the Evening Times: “This event has grown from a small group of 50 people to getting larger and larger each year.

“Every other year that we have run it, it has been a complete success.

“There has never been any trouble and the community is really great.”

Currently in the UK, possession of cannabis could land you up to five years in prison, an unlimited fine or both.

Supply and production carries a punishment of up to 14 years behind bars, an unlimited fine or both.
