This is why thousands of people gathered to smoke cannabis on Woodhouse Moor in Leeds


An event held annually to celebrate cannabis enjoyed a bumper turn-out in Leeds this year. Huge crowds turned out for Leeds Cannabis Social Club’s 420 gathering on Woodhouse Moor in Hyde Park on Saturday afternoon.

It’s part of a global protest movement calling for the decriminalisation of cannabis and is named after the time of 4.20pm.

The hot weather meant the event enjoyed one of its biggest ever turn-outs.
