The Origin of 420 Day
Cannabis users and critics alike have speculated about the origin of 420 day endlessly. A common theory is that it’s a birthday or death date, April 20, of someone famous who also loved cannabis. Another idea is that, like the “187” shorthand for murder taken from the California Penal Code, “420” must be lifted from police jargon or the law banning cannabis.
This is all wrong.
The True Story of 420 Day
Each April 20th, cannabis lovers unite to celebrate their favorite plant. You’ll see festivals, marches, parties, protests, smoke-outs—and yes, 420 sales—just about everywhere.
This isn’t just a local thing anymore. 420 is now also a corporate tradition, with brands such as Ben & Jerry’s making it a day for giving back to the community. Other brands such as T-Mobile and Totino’s have cashed in on “stoner” stereotypes in their ads.
This high holiday for cannabis fans originated in fall of 1971 in California. A group of pot-smoking high school students called the Waldos—that I can’t help but picture affectionately as the Scooby-Doo gang—had a treasure map that showed where some cannabis was buried.
A friend of one of the Waldos had a brother in the Coast Guard. Stationed nearby at the remote Point Reyes Lighthouse, the cadet had been growing a patch of cannabis for years on federal land close to the outpost. Worried that he might get busted, he drew the map and told the Waldos they could harvest and keep the pot if they found it.
The Waldos tried to solve the mystery time and again after meeting under a statue of Louis Pasteur at 4:20 pm with the treasure map (and hand pipes in pockets, probably). However, these Waldo Safaris proved unsuccessful. Still, the phrase “Louis 420” became a reminder of the meeting place and time, and 420 lived on.
Smoke sessions were popular among Grateful Dead fans, and with the band touring nonstop over the next two decades to large crowds, the 420 phenomenon continued to take root and blossom. It was, at first, also a way for cannabis users to connect despite heavy enforcement and draconian laws.
Most years there’s a 420 event and destination for every lifestyle and budget, but due to COVID-19 and the coronavirus that causes it, events pretty much across the board are postponed or canceled. You’ll be creating your own in-house event this time!
What Is 420?
So, now that you know the story…what do you do with this information?
420 is actually an important time for many cannabis enthusiasts, because it is more than a special time to connect with friends and celebrate the cannabis plant and lifestyle. It is also a time to agitate for change in drug laws, something that affects us all. In other words, there is a range to this holiday, from the silly and frivolous to the truly momentous.
So, when we think about questions like what does 420 mean? And, how do we celebrate? Or, why do we make the effort? Remember that 420 as a phrase includes a nationwide struggle for access to not just cannabis, but also information. Entire communities of patients are affected, not just a social scene.
But the social scene itself is worth saving! It’s a welcoming, inclusive community that is built on this ethic of sticking up for each other’s rights. So the next time someone jokes about 420 day, remind them about that.
How to Consume Cannabis on 420
What’s your pleasure?
If you love to smoke, stock up not just on your favorite strain, but also on a new grinder, rolling papers, or an amazing new glass pipe. No one wants to be limited to pre-rolls alone!
If you’re on the vapor train, your options are almost limitless. Go for a bubbler or a bong, and splurge for a chillum or perc to ensure you get cooler, smoother hits. Maybe make this 420 the year you try an ebong! Either way you can vape flower or concentrates, whatever you’re feeling as the day wears on.
Want some long-lasting effects to free you up to enjoy 420 doing something else? Eat it in a cookie, brownie, or a gummy bear. Get creative and infuse your flower or concentrate into olive oil and make salad dressing or pizza! You can even just use a little bit tincture under your tongue. It’s all good on 420.
Thanks to crumbling stigmas and increased knowledge about the medical properties of cannabis, now more than ever there are lots of ways to consume. This 420, try something new—or just stick to what you know and love.
