Do You Know the Significance of 420?

Recommended Posts

The number 420, of course, was chosen because modern marijuana smokers use the term not just as a way to refer to pot, but as a way of declaring that they are users of the drug at all. That's all very well and good, but how did the number 420 become significant in drug culture in the first place? I need more insights if you know the story

Just Google the origins of 420.


It is attributed to the Merry Pranksters when they were in high school and would get out of detention at 4:20 and meet behind the gym to blaze a fatty or some such.


Another origin story or two out there as well but can't recall them atm.
