Where Does ‘420’ Come From, Anyways?

415

Do not know where Huff Post gets their info. But I was there on, yes, (4–20–1972) when the first doobie days festival was held, tens of thousands came and smoked, yes, doobies in protest of California’s draconian pot laws. a few people got arrested at first but once the numbers began to climb there were just to many smokers, way more than there were cops. THAT is when 4–20 became a thing. not some high school kids hanging out. Huff Post should really check out there stories a little better. I know it is not of National importance however it is the true starting point of 4–20.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
