420 Magazine launches website

The pro-cannabis website sports a new look and additional features to the magazine.

The website www.420magazine.com was launched at 4:20 am on Tuesday, which incidentally is 4/20/2010.

The magazine which spreads news about cannabis -- a fibre (hemp) used for medicinal purposes and as a recreational drug -- promotes the repeal of all cannabis prohibition laws and penalties throughout the world. 4:20 or 4/20 refers to consumption of cannabis.

The magazine provides scientific and anecdotal advice of cannabis experts in the areas of cultivation, medical, social, and legal matters. About 14 states besides Washington DC have created legal medical marijuana programmes and 13 US states have decriminalised its possession and use to some extent.
