The numbers 420 (or 4:20, 4/20) are some of the most legendary slogans of hemp in the world. Many fans of hemp have not heard of it, so we will try to talk more closely about this holiday, where it came from and what these three figures mean.
How did it all start with 420?
In English-speaking countries, it is customary to write a date, specifying a month, and then a day, that is 4/20, April 20. Likewise, it's a good idea that 4:20 (morning or noon) is the right time for hemp. Hemp lovers around the world often mention these three figures when they talk about hemp, and in many thematic magazines and the issue of medical hemp somehow included these figures in the title.
Following the cult of 420
It is traditionally reported that the term began in the 1970s with the use of California schoolchildren who attended the secondary school in San Rafael. One group of teenagers was "originally" nicknamed "Valdos" in a place on a large wall, where they met every day after school for an afternoon joint.
Valdos planned to pick some kind of abandoned cannabis field, meeting on the sculpture of Louvre Pasteur in the schoolyard at four o'clock and twenty minutes the afternoon and after dinner. However, because they did not know the exact location of the field and did not find it the first time, they had to return the next day.
There were a few more unsuccessful attempts to find a secret place, while before the meeting, the boys always agreed to a meeting in "4:20 on Louise", eventually after this was shortened, and then from this password became the popular expression of all lovers of smoking in California.
Or was it completely different?
In addition to this hypothesis, there are others, such as the fans of the Grateful Dead group (also called Deadheads) who also lived in the San Rafael area and presumably used the term even before Valdos.
When a person tries to find out the true origin of the slogan, there is a danger that he will quickly get confused in a number of hypotheses that do not go so far from the theories about aliens. Maybe with this came, in fact, some alien? Eventually, according to the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", the answer to the main question - the meaning of life, the universe and generally - "42", and this is close to 420.
Be that as it may, it is now clear that the number 420 will always be of particular importance for fans of smoking - at least another 420 years. April 20 is becoming an increasingly popular holiday all over the world, during which fans of cannabis take to the streets and celebrate with friends (of course, they can also celebrate at home).
