Even if Hallmark begs to differ, cannabis culture insists that today signifies a major holiday. Needless to say, the urge to celebrate is felt almost universally these days but have you ever stopped to consider the origins of 4/20 phenomenology? The late-great Bob Marley might be to stoners what Santa Claus is to Christmas but true accreditation is said to trace back to 1971 when a group of high school students living in Marin County, California would meet on campus at 4:20pm each day for puff-puff-pass extracurriculars. To put it bluntly, they (and the rest of the world) would soon come to use “420” as a codeword for all things marijuana. Whether or not one can actually verify this anecdotal history, we’d like to believe that it is a true story of higher education.
