What Is 420 Day About?

It's a day when smokers come together not just to enjoy their favourite plant, but also to support the legalisation of marijuana, especially in the U.S., where marijuana is not legal at the federal level.

420 Day Origin

Legend has it that the story of 420 goes back to five friends from a high school in California named Steve Capper, Dave Reddix, Jeffrey Noel, Larry Schwartz, and Mark Gravich. They came up with the term 420 as part of their plan to search for a hidden cannabis crop. They got to know about this secret stash through a treasure map left by the grower. They met regularly at a wall outside their school, and chose the Louis Pasteur statue on the San Rafael High School grounds as their meeting point and 4:20 pm as their meeting time. Originally calling their mission 4:20, Louis, they later shortened it to just 4:20. This simple phrase evolved into the 420 code word they used to refer to smoking cannabis.
