What Is 420 Day aka Weed Day? How Can You Celebrate the 420 Festival?
When it comes to marijuana, it’s that time of year again, when people everywhere rejoice in the pungent green weed.
420 day is a kind of weed festival that is equally adored and despised around the worldwide, but for those who smoke a joint on occasion or on a daily basis, it is essentially an unofficial festival.
420 day, also known as Weed Day, occurs every year on 20th April when people light up and gather to celebrate marijuana.
People have been celebrating the unofficial holiday since the 1970s. But it’s still not clear how it started.
Many myths have surfaced on social media and around the world about how the 420 day festival came to be, with the majority of tales being untrue.
However, the majority of people believe that 420 Day began in California. In the 1970s, a group of adolescents from Marian County’s San Rafael High School would smoke marijuana every day at 4:20 p.m. The number 420 was adopted as their marijuana code.
The five students dubbed themselves the “Waldos,” after the school wall where they used to sit.
Letters, military records, and high school newspaper cuttings have all been used to corroborate the Waldos’ ancestors.
As a result, the word 420 became popular with the drug, and bands like The Grateful Dead marketed it.
