420 Hempstock Festival takes place today, with weed lovers gathering to celebrate annual 'Weed Day'.

Hundreds are expected to gather at Glasgow Green today for an annual pro-cannabis event.

420 Hempstock will kick-off at midday, with people coming together to celebrate and discuss the Class B drug.

Organised by the Glasgow Cannabis Social Club, there will be stalls and raffles for visitors as well as live music and speeches from speakers.

The rally is expected to be a busy one, with 983 people already having expressed interest in attending on the event's Facebook page.

Social media users have been quick to share their excitement ahead of the rally.

Brandon Macaulay said: "Theres a reason it's called 'Glasgow Green'. See y'all Friday."

Andrea Valente gushed: "Looking forward to this one hope it's a nice day."

Ali King added: "Happy 420 everyone."

Now in it's 12th year, 420 Hempstock Festival runs as part of 420 Day, which is celebrated worldwide.

The unofficial event, also known as Weed Day, takes place on April 20 each year.

Dedicated to marijuana, 420 Day sees like-minded people unite to celebrate and discuss the subject of cannabis. Many campaigners also push for the legalisation of the drug.

Similar events are taking place today across the UK including in London, Durham, Leeds and Derry - the largest of which will take place at Hyde Park.

More than a thousand people are expected to attend the event, with 1,300 already having signed up on Facebook.

Over the years, many have been arrested as a result of Hyde Park 420 celebrations, but weed fans insist they will 'peacefully' demand the decriminalisation of the drug.

There will be a strong police presence on the day at with random drug searches in place.

Cops are reminding event-goers that the usual drug laws will apply.

Glasgow Green revellers are expected to join others across the world by taking part in the tradition of “lighting up” at 4:20pm – despite not having the green light from Glasgow City Council.
