A recent website search on Google for “420” brought up hundreds of millions of websites which are 420 related.There are plenty of myths and rumors on the origin of 420, such as: 420 is a California police dispatch code for smoking pot (which is untrue).
April 20th has become a counter-culture holiday where friends in US cities gather in groups to celebrate 420-friendly events, parties and festivals.
But, the most trusted story to date is that a group of California high school students in the 70’s, calling themselves the Waldos, intent on developing their own discreet language made up the 420 code which made p.m.
their official meeting time to smoke cannabis after school.
Today, you can find 420 friendly vending machines, 420 friendly magazines, 420 conventions like Kush Expo, Hemp Con Medical Marijuana Show and in Canada, the Vancouver Cannamed Fair Expo.
There are also 420 friendly hotels, bars, restaurants, nightclubs, as well as jewelry and cosmetics all made from hemp and we did not even mention the most important of them all, 420 friendly dating sites. I have no doubt that this is just the beginning of the 420 friendly never ending story.
