4/20 Bud

The AK-47

AK-47 Feminized Marijuana seeds

And the AK-47

so what is the deal with 4/20, you may ask.

Yes, I realize it is 4/19 today.

I read somewhere that somehow, somewhere dopers decided that 4:20 was the time of day to smoke a J, whether at work, in the car, at home, or wherever. Why? dunno.

Highway mileage markers all over the country list mileage marker “420” have disappeared everywhere.

In 1971, five high school students in San Rafael, California,[5][6] used the term “4:20” in connection with a plan to search for an abandoned cannabis crop, based on a treasure map made by the grower.[7][8] Calling themselves the Waldos,[9][10] because their typical hang-out spot “was a wall outside the school”,[11] the five students (Steve Capper, Dave Reddix, Jeffrey Noel, Larry Schwartz, and Mark Gravich)[12] designated the Louis Pasteur statue[13] on the grounds of San Rafael High School as their meeting place, and 4:20 pm as their meeting time.[11] The Waldos referred to this plan with the phrase “4:20 Louis”. After several failed attempts to find the crop, the group eventually shortened their phrase to “4:20”, which ultimately evolved into a code-word the teens used to refer to consuming cannabis.[7]

You may now consider yourself ‘enlightened’.

Now, fire one up and jam…

  1. Colorado had a massive problem with the 420 mile-marker signs. As soon as CODOT replaced them, they were gone. They even tried making them read “419.9”, but they disappeared, too!

  2. California’s proposition 420 decriminalized MJ. The term “420” became the code word for stoners to find others who were stoners.
