Happy weed day!

Cannabis lovers across the U.S. are busy ditching work to spend some quality time with their bongs today in honor of the number all potheads hold dear: 420.

Buying marijuana has never been easier, thanks to the 2016 elections: Six new states approved measures for recreational or medical marijuana use.

Grab these pot apps for a great 4/20.
