Today is 4 20 and its time to celebrate!






4 20 has been code for cannabis related activities among users of marijuana for years. It is also April 20th and known internatioanly as a " Univeral Smoke Day" even for those ocasional smokers or poor quiters who have fallen prey to peer pressure. Most people unfortunely do not know the true orgin of the name and there is very little solid proof about why and when the term was used first. The most common misconception is that 4 20 is a police code for a drug bust or for "marijuana smoking in progress", this myth however according to our many sources in the police and law enforcement community is completly false. The most likely and widely accepted origin according to Wikipedia.org, "Snopes.com, High Times magazine, The Marijuana-Logues, and The Straight Dope claim that in the early 1970s, a group of teenagers at San Rafael High School in San Rafael, California used to meet every day after school at 4:20 p.m. to smoke marijuana at the water tower. One piece of evidence supporting an origin of the term from the time 4:20 is the fact that the number is always said "four twenty" and not "four hundred twenty." This theory is also the most cited, and the most widely-accepted."(taken from wikipedia.org) Be sure to check out the wikipedia article by clicking on the title above for more information about this epic day and its orgins and remeber wikipedia is open to everyone so if you know something we don't, then share the wealth and add to the article.
