UP IN SMOKE: The best Ottawa #420 tweets and photos

Things moved slowly on Parliament Hill Thursday — and not just because the House of Commons is adjourned until May 1.

A haze of marijuana smoke hung over the Hill as hundreds lit up during the annual 4/20 demonstration, which pushes for the drug’s legalization. The smoke was naturally its thickest around 4:20 p.m.

The federal government tabled legislation to legalize marijuana earlier this month.
