A lil’b about da 4/20

I found this online and I thought it was cool to share it:

The term 420 is used widely in Cannabis culture as a time to get high, a national day to get high, and cannabis itself. 

There are a lot of different theories about how the word was first invented: 

:: San Rafael theroy :: 
In the early 1970’s, a group of teenagers who attended San Rafael High School in San Rafael, California used to get high every day at 4:20 in the afternoon under the Louis Pasteur statue. 

:: Bob Dylan theroy :: 
In Bob Dylan’s song, ‘Rainy Day Women #12 && 35,’ the lyrics contain ‘everybody must get stoned.’ 420 comes from the title, as 12 * 35 = 420. 

:: Highway 420 :: 
In Ontario, Canada in the 60’s, marijuana grew freely on one of the Highways. This highway was later renamed in 1972 as Highway 420.
