Wyclef

Bio: Born October 17, 1969 is a three-time Grammy Award-winning Haitian-American rapper, singer-songwriter, musician, record producer, and politician. Lead Fugees rapper and sometime guitarist Wyclef Jean was the first member of his group to embark on a solo career, and he proved even more ambitious and eclectic on his own. As the Fugees hung in limbo, Wyclef also became hip-hop's unofficial multicultural conscience; a seemingly omnipresent activist, he assembled or participated in numerous high-profile charity benefit shows for a variety of causes, including aid for his native Haiti. The utopian one-world sensibility that fueled Wyclef's political consciousness also informed his recordings, which fused hip-hop with as many different styles of music as he could get his hands on (though, given his Caribbean roots, reggae was a particular favorite). In addition to his niche as hip-hop's foremost global citizen, Clef was also a noted producer and remixer who worked with an impressive array of pop, R&B, and hip-hop talent, including Whitney Houston, Santana, and Destiny's Child, among many others.

Why this is the most important 420 Rally yet

It’s now a worldwide phenomenon. While the origin of the term “420” is debatable, there is no doubt that what once started as an underground code for friends to share a few puffs has morphed into a movement, celebrating the marijuana culture as a whole and symbolizing how far the industry has come. The Denver “420 Rally” in Civic Center Park on April 19th and 20th promises again, to be the biggest rally in history, and arguably it’s most important. While Washington State has floundered in their attempts to create a robust regulatory infrastructure to govern the industry, Colorado has taken aggressive steps to ensure the marijuana industry realizes its potential in a credible, responsible manner. Colorado is the epicenter of the industry and all eyes will be on Denver on 4/20/14. Recognizing the need to make 420 movement more accessible to the public, 420 Events has agreed to produce this year’s rally, and has created a plan that not only celebrates how far the industry has come, but recognizes the challenges that still remain. “While this year’s rally is still a celebration of the marijuana culture and a protest against the federal prohibition against its use. Our goal is to create a positive environment for users to share stories, learn about the industry and create informed opinions on the remaining issues facing the industry”, said Miguel Lopez, original founder and emcee of the Denver 420 Rally. Attendees of 2014 “420 Rally” will be treated to an array of national music acts, speeches from leading authorities within the industry, a food market championing alternative marijuana products as well as a local artists pavilion. Unlike past years, this year’s event will feel less like doing something wrong while your [...]

420 Facts: Did you know?

Try these conversation starters on for size at this year’s 420 Rally, or impress your friends with these fun facts: The prevailing theory around the origin of the term “420” is that a group of five high school students from San Rafael, Calif. - affectionately known as “The Waldos” – began using the term in 1971 as the chosen time to meet and consume marijuana. The first 420 Rally was founded by Ken Borman 29 years ago. He was murdered under mysterious circumstances in 2007 and his murder remains unsolved to this day. The Denver 420 Rally is the biggest in the world and is celebrating its 28th anniversary in 2014. Colorado collected more than $2 million in tax revenue in the first month that dispensaries began selling marijuana for recreational use. Contrary to the fears of some, crime is actually reducing at a faster rate in states that have a regulated marijuana industry. While medicinal marijuana is commonly known to offer some relief for chemo patients, there are many ailments that can be treated by marijuana-based products, from inflammation to insomnia. Early data indicates that marijuana usage patterns have remained flat and consistent with national trends since the passage of Amendment 64. Colorado has witnessed a 77% decrease in marijuana related court cases, saving the state millions in court expenses. What are your most important issues facing marijuana industry?
