Happy 420 Day people! The unofficial holiday is to celebrate and indulge in marijuana, as well as your favorite foods when you get the munchies
How did 420 Day start?
Apparently, like a good high, it’s unclear. There are a lot of myths and speculation, but most of the reports haven’t been verified. One thing that a lot of people seem to agree on is that it can be traced to the 70s when a group of 5 students at San Rafael High School in Marin County, California began meeting at 4:20pm to smoke weed. I guess the students decided to get together at 4:20pm because at that time, extracurricular activities were over. The five students called themselves “The Waldos” because they would sit against a wall and smoke.
