Why 420?

3 years ago

Why is April 20th (4/20) called `Weed Day`? No, it`s not Bob Marley`s birthday like a lot of people think. Bob Marley`s birthday is actually February 6th. Some people also think that it`s 4/20 because there`s `420 chemicals in it`. That is also incorrect. And 420 is also not police code for marijuana.

The term 420 originated at San Rafael High School, in 1971, among a group of about a dozen pot-smokers who called themselves the Waldos. The term was shorthand for the time of day the group would meet, at the campus statue of Louis Pasteur, to smoke pot. Intent on developing their own discreet language, they made 420 code for a time to get high, and its use spread among members of an entire generation.

So there ya go! Someone`s parents out there invented the term 4/20. Next time someone says `Happy Birthday, Bob Marley` in April, you can educate them.
