Today is 420 day. A day on which marijuana lovers come together. But why do we actually associate 420 with weed?
Cannabis smokers worldwide associate April 20 (or 4-20) with a holiday for cannabis lovers. A day on which cannabis culture is celebrated. But why and how has this date actually been chosen? Many marijuana smokers and non-smokers know the term 420, but do not know exactly where it comes from.
There are people who think that the number 420 is a code that police officers use to indicate that marijuana is being smoked. While others think that 4-20 represents the birthday of none other than Adolf Hitler.
Today is April 20 (4/20). To cannabis lovers worldwide: Happy 420 Day!
And then you also have people who go even further and think that 420 refers to a Bob Dylan song (Rainy Day Women # 12 & 35) because 12 times 35 is 420.
But all these theories have been proven to be incorrect. The history behind how April 20 and 4/20 were associated with marijuana is very different.
The cannabis number 420 originated in California
To get to know the history behind the number 420, we have to go back to the year 1971. In California, five students used to meet every day after school at 4:20. The story goes that they met each other in front of a statue of the chemist Louis Pasteur in the schoolyard.
This time, 4:20, was chosen because they first had to do all kinds of after-school activities. This group, consisting of Steve Capper, Dave Reddix, Jeffrey Noel, Larry Schwartz, and Mark Gravich, were also called the Waldos.
Apparently they never found the plantation, but every search ended with smoking joints
The Waldos used the term 420 as a code for marijuana. In addition, the story goes that the boys were on the search for a remote cannabis plantation, each day after school. Apparently, they never found the plantation, but every search ended with smoking joints.
Happy 4:20 Day everybody!
