4:20 is a very recurring number among cannabis consumers; currently, 4/20 – April, de 20th – is World Marijuana Day; so far, so simple, but, why is 4:20 the marijuana number?

The answer to that question dates back to the 70s in the USA, in California; there was a young social struggle story, against the establishment.

History and origin of 420

California, back in the 70s; the Waldos – a group of young students – establishes 4:20 as weed-smoking meeting time, after class; actually, that was the schedule-finishing time for punished students – the rest finished at 3: gradually, 4:20 weed-smoking meeting time became a tradition; marijuana consumption was prohibited, prosecuted and socially stigmatized, so 4:20 became a code or code name, instead of “let’s smoke weed”.

Through the years, the term spread from Cali to the rest of the country – and worldwide; in fact, 4:20 is currently an internationally known term when weed-smoking for a while – actually, no matter what time it is.
