420 typically attracts thousands of people to Golden Gate Park, however San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced the annual celebration is not welcome for a second year in a row, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Do not come to San Francisco on 420 to Robin Williams Meadows,” Breed said in a press conference last week. “We will not allow this unsanctioned event to occur this year.”

Breed warned, “We will patrol the area…We will be on the lookout for large massive events in our city, because the bigger issue for us, is that the last thing we want to see, is San Francisco go backwards.”

San Francisco officials are hopeful people will follow the order similar to last year, but police will issue citations and arrest people if needed.

“For your own health and safety, please do not come and please do not try to identify another location,” said Breed.
