How Long Until Illinois Weed is Sold Legally at Wrigley Field?
The Chicago Cubs just wrapped up a west coast road trip where they went 5-1 and absolutely smoked the Oakland A's in a 3-game sweep.

Enjoy Hemp-Based Drinks at Wrigley Field on 4/20
In a first for a Major League Baseball team, the Chicago Cubs are serving a hemp-based "elixir" called Mynd, a sparkling "plant-based-hemp-infused" drink.
Served only to the 21 and older fans at Wrigley Field, these CBD seltzers have zero THC included, which is the psychoactive property of Marijuana that gives people a "high."
So, there won't actually be a bunch of stoners walking around confused at the Cubbie game, but according to the Mynd website, their drinks do claim to "help people relax, refresh and recover from the stresses and strains of everyday life in an all-natural way."

It's literally 420 feet from the Wrigley Field entrance to a weed dispensary
If you do enjoy adult-use recreational marijuana products and want to celebrate 4/20 before the Cubs beat the Dodgers, it's only a one-minute walk to the Sunnyside Wrigleyville dispensary that has every type of flower, edible, and vape you could ask for.
When I checked Google Maps, the walk from the main Wrigley Field entrance to the closest dispensary is 420 feet. Coincidence?
