Dozens gathered at Riverside Park to smoke marijuana, an event that has been held in Kamloops since 2010.

4/20 started in Vancouver on April 20, 1995. At that time it was a small day-long sit-in where people smoked marijuana in public in support of legalizing the drug.

Now thousands of people worldwide participate in the so-called 4/20 movement.
