To all of my stoner friends, have a wonderful and incredible 4/20. For those of you who don’t know what 4/20 (4:20) means, I did you the favor of looking it up online at Concept420, so here goes:
“‘What does 420 mean? There are varying theories on the origin of 420. Some say that 420 originated from a police code that announces marijuana use is taking place. Yet another story is that a group of guys (Waldo’s) in the 1970’s made 4:20 their official meeting time to smoke marijuana after school. Whether or not 4:20 p.m. is the best time of day for your first hit depends on your own body, your own needs. Some folks feel that waiting until 4:20 enhances ones appreciation of the herb. Of course, your mileage may vary.”‘
It turns out the whole police code thing is a misconception. So is the idea that it relates to Hitler’s birthday, Columbine nor does it mean that there are 420 chemicals in marijuana. Instead, it has morphed itself into the now unofficial stoner holiday (also, in Pulp Fiction all the clocks are set to 4:20 — if you didn’t notice.)
So now that you are aware, come join in on the festivities today with your THC lovin’ friends. I know I will 😉
