April is upon us, and cannabis connoisseurs know what that means…. 420! Some of you are thinking.. 420 what does that mean? There has been a few different ideas behind the meaning.
Some think that 420 is the dispatch code for smoking cannabis. I’ve heard also heard of there being 420 active Ingredients in weed.
I did some research and snooping online! Here’s what I found. Mainly from High Times.
The tale of 4/20 winds back to the year 1971 and a group of high schoolers nicknamed the “Waldos.” The kids, pot smokers all, attended San Rafael High School in Northern California, and heard rumor of a wild patch of herb somewhere nearby for the taking.
Every day, the kids would meet at the Louis Pasteur statue outside their school to embark on a fresh search for the weed trove. “We would remind each other in the hallways that we were going to meet at 4:20 p.m. at Louie,” . “We’d smile and kind of salute each other saying, ‘Remember, 4:20 Louie.’ We kept that for weeks. Eventually “4:20 Louie” just became “4:20.”
Crazy how things start. The more I keep reading more stories I found! I didn’t find out if they found the secret stash or not!
In 1991 High Times posted a flyer in an issue ( It’s 1991 no Facebook events here!) They called it the grandmaster of holidays! Eventually things caught on, and 420 is celebrated all over in many ways!
From what I have read,420 is not only a special day, it can be a time and a state of mind. A entire movement.
I hope you join us on April 20, for our 420 saleabration!!! That’s right a sale! How could we not celebrate 420.
