420 & Other Cannabis Cultural Icons

Even if Hallmark and your boss beg to differ, cannabis culture insists that today marks an important holiday but have you ever stopped to consider where 4/20 actually comes from? The late-great Bob Marley might be to stoners what Santa Claus is to Christmas but true accreditation can apparently be traced back to a handful of high school students living in Marin County, California in 1971 who would meet at 4:20pm each and every day after extracurricular activities for an herbal refreshment. 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 we can verify this anecdotal history, we’d like to believe that it’s a true story of higher education.
