It marks the 420 holiday! A day to celebrate the cannabis plant…
However, if you are new to cannabis or have never heard of this holiday you will be wondering what on earth we’re talking about. Let us bring you up to speed…
420 is what binds the cannabis community together. It originated in 1971 at San Rafael High School, 30 minutes north of San Francisco when a group of students got wind that there was an abandoned cannabis patch in a forest near their school! Not wanting the cannabis to go to waste, the owner of the cannabis patch drew a map and passed it on.
The map then fell into the hands of the students…
From then on, all 5 of the students (known as The Waldos) would meet everyday after class at (yes you guessed it), 4.20pm! They would then smoke copiously before venturing into the forest armed with the treasure map, searching for the lost grow.
They searched for weeks! Although they never found the gold, they continued to meet everyday with their code name for smoking cannabis as “420”. Eventually, this was used as a term for anything cannabis related.
In the 90’s High Times caught wind of this term and it’s been widely used all over the world ever since.
Everyone who partakes in the plant around the globe celebrate the 420 holiday. It’s a day to enjoy with friends, celebrate the plant, attend a legalisation rally, basically anything you like!
