Do you know what 420 stands for? Of course, and just like other “special dates” this year April is going to be special!
Although funny, 420 has grown out into a real cultural event. Massive weed parties in San Francisco, where there is a new kind of fog hanging over Golden Gate Park. You could get stoned by entering the park on April 20th.
The concept of 420 can all be traced back to a group of five California teens who used to hang out by a wall outside their San Rafael school—a meeting spot that inspired their nickname, “the Waldos.”
The Waldos would meet after school to go smoke some weed. As the schoolday would finish at 4:20, the code was used to make plans to meet right after school would exit, and smoke some weed. It’s as simple as a code between people who were sharing the love for cannabis. Or should we refer to them as a bunch of high schoolers looking to have fun.
It has been years, but in the world of cannabis, the concept of 420 has become a real thing.
