It’s the number that is the universal symbol of marijuana; 420.

By the way, many parents (and most pot smoking teens) do not know the significance of the number. One urban myth has 420 being the number of chemicals in marijuana. If someone tells you that, tell them that they are high.

From Wikipedia: The earliest use of the term began among a group of teenagers in San Rafael, California in 1971.[2][3] Calling themselves the Waldos, because “their chosen hang-out spot was a wall outside the school,”[4] the group first used the term in connection to a fall 1971 plan to search for an abandoned cannabis crop that they had learned about.[5] The Waldos designated the Louis Pasteur statue on the grounds of San Rafael High School as their meeting place, and 4:20 p.m. as their meeting time.[4] The Waldos referred to this plan with the phrase “4:20 Louis”. Multiple failed attempts to find the crop eventually shortened their phrase to simply “4:20”, which ultimately evolved into a codeword the teens used to mean pot-smoking in general.[5]

Like St Patty’s day for drinkers, April 20th is the celebration of cannabis.

One gathering features thousands of smokers on the campus of the University of Colorado. But university officials have tried everything to thwart the toking in their quad. They used fences and sprinklers to no avail.

This year, according to the CBS-TV affiliate in Denver, the campus is turning to fish fertilizer to try to keep the crowds away. They will spread the fertilizer all over the quad to discourage attendance.

Even threats of ticketing with fines up to $100 isn’t scaring away the estimated 10,000 people expected to show up Friday.

Parents should be vigilant as children will tend to mimic this behavior. Find out where your teen is Friday at 4:20pm.
