Every twentieth of April at 4:20, cannabis users all over the world celebrate Weed Day. But not all supporters know the origins of the celebration. Washington-based company Testclear, which is in the business of drug tests and how to pass them, reveals the origin of the date in the video “A High Holiday: The History behind 4/20.”
After California legalized the use of recreational marijuana early this year, discussions about the plant were reignited. One of which is the origin of the 4/20 celebration. There are several speculations. One says the date is based on the number of chemicals in marijuana, but it was debunked, as the actual number is 483.
Others believe that it was taken from the famous song “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35” by Bob Dylan since 12 multiplied by 35 equals 420. Still others believe that 420 is a police code for illegal marijuana use.
One of the most popular speculations (possibly the most widely accepted one) starts with a group of five high school boys from Marin County, California. Watch the video to find out the whole story.
