Origins of 4/20
4/20 is a holiday celebrated by cannabis enthusiasts around the world, and it has a long and interesting history. Here's a look at the origins of 4/20 and how it has evolved into the holiday we know today:
The origins of 4/20 can be traced back to the 1970s, when a group of high school students in San Rafael, California began meeting at 4:20 pm to smoke cannabis. According to legend, the students had heard about a secret cannabis plantation and were using the time and place as a code to meet and search for it. While they never found the plantation, the term "4/20" stuck and became a code among the students for smoking cannabis.
Over time, the term 4/20 spread beyond San Rafael and became a widely-recognized term among cannabis enthusiasts. In the 1990s, 4/20 began to be celebrated more openly, with events and gatherings being held on college campuses and in public parks. Today, 4/20 is celebrated around the world and has become a mainstream holiday, with events being held in cities and towns across the globe.
4/20 is now celebrated in many different ways, from outdoor festivals and concerts to smoke-filled coffee shops and private gatherings. Whatever form it takes, 4/20 is a day to celebrate the joys and benefits of cannabis and to mark the end of cannabis prohibition.
