The Nation’s Capital will undoubtedly be draped in a curious haze of smoke this coming Saturday (April 20), most especially the grounds of RFK Stadium. The fourth annual National Cannabis Festival kicks off at noon on 420, with Ludacris and Action Bronson sharing the top billing.

Along with Luda and Bronsolini, Washington’s legendary Go-Go band, The Junkyard Band, will also take the NCF stages. Joining the aforementioned acts are reggae band Strykers Posse, brass band Black Masala, and DJ Farrah Flosscett.

While music and, ahem, the sticky green leaf will be the center of the festivities tomorrow, NCF organizers also held a National Cannabis Policy Summit earlier today (April 19) at Washington’s Newseum, and we’ve breezed through to find a well-attended event with some of the most knowledgeable marijuana advocates and activists in the region and beyond.

In case you’re up for joining tomorrow’s party, check out more information about the National Cannabis Festival here.

Joel Schumacher

Genre: Comedy

Price: $ 4.99

Washington, D.C., becomes the District of Comedy in this high-speed hit from writer-director Joel Schumacher (Veronica Guerin, Phone Booth, Bad Company). When young Albert Hockenberry (Adam Baldwin) wants to become a cabbie, he's got the wackiest teachers around, courtesy of his Uncle Howard (Max Gail) and the freewheeling D.C. Cab Co., including Samson (Mr. T) and Dell (Gary Busey). Along the way, Albert falls in love with beautiful waitress Claudette (Jill Schoelen) and gets caught up in a kidnapping, with Mr. T and the other cabbies riding to the rescue to the tune of Mission: Impossible. From a raid on a topless club and a game of chicken with an oncoming train to a cameo appearance by singer Irene Cara, their hilarious hi-jinks spell comedy with a "capital" C!
