The Dackman reveals what all the buzz is about 420?
First, let's talk about what "420" doesn't mean. 4/20 isn't the date Bob Marley died, for example — he actually succumbed to cancer on 5/11/81 — no matter what you may have heard or read to the contrary. (It's not his birthday, either.) 420 isn't the number of a bill in U.S. Congress aiming to legalize weed, despite many people
420 isn't the police or penal code for marijuana possession in California (or any other state), though many people are convinced of that, as well.
Nor is 420 is the number of chemical compounds in cannabis, the pot plant, though lots of folks seem fond of stating so.
What 420 is — whether expressed in the form 4:20 (as a time of day), 4/20 (as a calendar date), or just the unadorned numeral 420 (pronounced "four-twenty") — is a universal, unofficial symbol for the use and enjoyment of marijuana. As a matter of fact, 4/20 (April 20) has come to be known in certain circles as "Marijuana Appreciation Day," or simply "Weed Day.
""420" origin and history Notwithstanding the many and various urban legends that have grown up around the meaning of "420" and its connection with marijuana, the true story behind that connection is surprisingly prosaic.
In the early 1970s a small group of hippie stoners at San Rafael High School in northern California used to meet at a designated location every day to smoke weed at 4:20 p.m. They did this so regularly that among members of the group (known as "the Waldos") the expression "420" became a general euphemism for "time to light up."
The catchphrase spread beyond their immediate circle, beyond the high school they attended, and ultimately beyond California, so that within a decade or two pot smokers were using it across the country, and indeed the world over. How popular is the expression today? A Google search on the paired terms "420" and "marijuana" brings up more than 18 million results, including a link to the website of 420 Magazine, a publication dedicated to what its publishers refer to as "cannabis awareness. "Happy 420!
