Denver-based cannabis accessories brand Blazy Susan is working naturally with One Tree Planted this April 20, so every order on their website will result in a different tree being planted in April, the Earth month.

Blazy Susan estimates the initiative will plant more than 1,000 new trees, helping One Tree Planted’s focus on global reforestation.

In addition to forwarding funds to One Tree Planted, brand employees will attend a personal planting event in Denver.

Blazy Susan offers roll paper (including pink), pre-rolled cones, smoking accessories, swab accessories, bundles, and rolling trays (including a rotating one). Customers can Save 20 percent on EVERYTHING at blazysusan.com when you use the code. In April, at the cash register, an Instagram post is noted.

Regardless of the differences between the members of the Blazy Susan team, “we all have one thing in common – a deep love and appreciation for the earth and our environment,” which create a healthier climate and promote biodiversity, the company reports.

COVID-19 restrictions keep the public in check for the in-person planting event. However, the hope is that “this will mark the beginning of a long and meaningful partnership between Blazy and One Tree Planted and that we can plant thousands of trees in the years to come.”

The Oasis Cannabis Dispensary in Chandler, Arizona couldn’t think of a better way to mark the 4/20 life-affirming sentiment than to make cannabis available to all those who provide life-saving blood on the busiest weed day of the year: Apr 20.

Sponsored by Oasis Cannabis, Copia, and OGeez !, blood drive participants have access to more than just feeling good about helping their community.

Additional extras for all attendees 21 and older include an Amazon E-Gift Card valued at $ 10, a free 100 mg pack of OGeez! Gummies and a one-gram Oasis hybrid pre-roll, according to Oasis Cannabis.

“Usually 420 is just filled with discounts and freebies,” but the companies wanted to give back to the community by holding the blood donation. With the new adult market in Arizona, the company expects this 4/20 to be the largest to date.

As a weed lover, a potential participant may have THC in their systems. That’s okay. People can continue to donate blood because “all donated blood goes through post-filtration to ensure that the recipient receives clean platelets or cells,” reports Oasis Cannabis.

The Ontario Group is committed to fair wages and safe working conditions

Working conditions for the cannabis industry will take center stage with a new campaign starting April 20th.

According to the CBC, a group of cannabis workers in Hamilton, Ont. sees 4/20 as the perfect time to raise awareness of the industry’s working conditions and educate individuals about their rights.

Under the Ontario Occupational Safety and Health Act, workers have the right to participate, the right to know, and the right to refuse work. The law “forbids reprisals against workers who exercise these rights”.

The United Weed Workers report that they have heard stories from industry workers of a shortage of personal protective equipment, “while COVID has their businesses operating without an adequate robbery and violence prevention strategy and promising wages and benefits that are not manifested through proper corporate governance” . according to the CBC.

The cannabis industry covers many different types of jobs, from cultivation to retail. The employees of some retail stores were able to organize themselves successfully, according to United Weed Workers. One store in British Columbia recently unionized and two stores in Hamilton voted to unionize. That is, “in the agricultural sector, despite their best efforts, workers were unable to organize themselves due to government intervention and migrant workers problems,” the CBC cites the group as an indication.

“We are committed to fair wages, safe conditions and sustainable cannabis for everyone,” says the group’s Twitter feed.
