Plenty of marijuana enthusiasts use the term 420 to describe their activities. Fellow stoners meet each other through the 420 code. Gathering at that time of day to toke marijuana buds. Or to tell people about the upcoming marijuana smoking session.
Though the term is used all the time, many potheads and pot seeds growers are unfamiliar with the origins of 420. Like much of cannabis lore there's no precise explanation for the word.
However there's plenty of claim as to where 420 originated from. Apparently the term began by a group of teenagers at San Rafael High School in San Rafael, California, United States in 1971. The teens would meet after school at 4:20 p.m. to smoke marijuana at the Louis Pasteur statue.
Since then marijuana enthusiasts and activists have turned Apr. 20 (4/20 on the calendar) into a cannabis celebration. With either home parties or public protest celebration. Throwing a 420 house party is fun.
Provide a plethora of cool toking toys like marijuana vaporizers, bongs and rolling papers.
Invite tons of tokers to your pot pad then celebrate with plenty of marijuana grown from pot seeds.
Marijuana activists use 4/20 to publicly puff.
Also known as a smoke out or pot protest.
A large celebration is held every year on the University of Colorado’s Boulder campus, with attendance reaching more than 10,000 in 2008. In 2009, it has been estimated that the crowd reached over the 10,000 attendee mark.
Both Vancouver and Toronto Canada hold puffing protests on Apr. 20 that have resulted in no arrests. Despite the blatant doobie smoking. An estimated 5000 people, pot heads, cannabis enthusiasts and seeds growers, gathered around the Vancouver Art Gallery to celebrate 420.
