Why is 420 celebrated as weed day

Why is 420 associated with weed 

In the late 1970s, 420 was born in San Rafael, California. The term was invented by a group of five San Rafael High School friends known as the Waldos, who named themselves after their favorite hangout spot, a wall outside the school. Every day at 4:20 p.m., these California teens smoked marijuana ritualistically. The 420 grew in popularity, and it soon became a code for smoking marijuana. However, the real origin has not been confirmed and many believe that 420 was the California police or penal code for marijuana or even that there are 420 active chemicals in marijuana but there is no evidence to support these claims. 

Why is 420 associated with weed 

Every year, pot smokers all over the world celebrate April 20 (or 4/20) as a reason to get high with friends and large crowds. Major rallies take place throughout the country, especially in states where marijuana is legal, such as Colorado and California. The meaning of 4/20 varies from person to person. Some people are only interested in getting high and having a good time. Others see the day as an opportunity to advocate for legalization or to celebrate legalization now that it is being adopted by more states and has widespread support. 

The celebrations are becoming more popular and commercialized as support for marijuana legalization increases. As a result, marijuana companies are searching for new ways to sell and advertise their goods during the holiday season. This contrasts sharply with 4/20’s new incarnation, which was once adopted by a counterculture movement mostly made up of hippies and others who despised greed and other non-conventional things.  

What is 420 friendly 

This is a way of expressing approval of people who smoke marijuana or accepting someone who does so without explicitly referencing marijuana or weed. It simply means that the individual, place or website accepts people who smoke marijuana and are likely to do so. 

Happy 420 

Yesterday was 4/20, a day when tens of thousands of Americans assemble around the country to commemorate the legalization of a substance that is still not completely legal in the United States: marijuana. April 20th is also the largest cannabis shopping day of the year, in addition to being a significant day for activism and the cannabis culture at large. The widespread legalisation of cannabis as a recreational and medicinal product has resulted in an increase in dispensary sales, with April 20th being dubbed the “cannabis Black Friday.”
