What’s 4/20 and where did the term come from?

420, 4:20, or 4/20 is a slang term that refers to the consumption of cannabis on or around the time 4:20 pm. It also refers to cannabis-oriented celebrations that take place on April 20.

According to the History Channel, the term 4/20 can be traced back to a group of five teens called “the Waldos.”

The group was given a sort of treasure map by a Coast Guard member who could no longer tend to his crop. They agreed to meet a least once a week – at 4:20 pm – to look for the abandoned herb. A member of the Waldos, Steve Capper, told the Huffington Post, “We would remind each other in the hallways we were supposed to meet up at 4:20.” And thus, the term 420 was coined, which allowed students to discuss smoking pot without parents or teachers knowing.

 

How did 4/20 get spread internationally?

The Grateful Dead. It just so happens that the Waldos has connections to the Dead through their parents via business management and real estate. Capper told the Huffington Post, “There was a place called Winterland, and we’d always be backstage running around or on stage and, of course, we’re using those phrases. When somebody passes a joint or something, ‘Hey, 420.’ So, it started spreading through that community.”

Once “High Times” got a hold of the story in the 1990s, the magazine helped launch the word globally. Today, the unofficial holiday is celebrated worldwide.
