The 420 Times Now Second Most Visited Marijuana Magazine Online

Visitors respond to breaking news on marijuana issues in California and nationwide.

Los Angeles, CA, September 29, 2010 --( In its first year of its existence, The 420 Times has quickly soared to the number 2 spot on the Alexa ranking of printed marijuana magazines on line, led only by the venerable cannabis-culture publication, High Times.

“From the beginning, our philosophy has been to treat medical marijuana patients with respect,” says The 420 Times’ Editor, Dave Brian. “Our readers know that marijuana users are not the caricatures that are sometimes portrayed in the media. They’re doctors, lawyers, musicians and construction-workers with productive careers and full lives,” Brian says. “Both on line and in print, we speak to them intelligently—and it’s paying off in readership.”

A major milestone was reached this summer, when journalist Joe Klare joined The 420 Times as on line editor. The result was the creation of a vibrant community that has come to rely on The 420 Times for continually-updated information on political and legal developments, as well as a dynamic hub for social interaction.

"The 420 Times is committed to providing quality journalism on the issues that face marijuana users and patients," says Brian. "We’re happy that the web site has become a go-to destination for the latest news and discussion.” The 420 Times is a member of the Los Angeles Press Club and adheres to high standards of journalistic integrity."

As an official Google News source, stories from The 420 Times regularly appear on screens across the country, making it a major boundary-free destination for information on the medical, legal and political issues surrounding cannabis use and cultivation. In print, The 420 Times super-serves the needs of cannabis consumers in Southern California.

“Our web traffic proves that readers are clamoring for insightful information about marijuana,” says Brian. “With ongoing medical research, several court cases and the prospect of legalization in California, that interest can only intensify,” he says.

“We’re excited that The 420 Times is here to give it the coverage it deserves.”
