4.20 STORY

It was the Autumn of 1971 when five students of the San Rafael High School in California found out about the existence of an abandoned marijuana plantation near Point Reyes, just one hour drive from school.

 

The guys decided to meet outside the school at 4.20pm to reach out the plantation on a Chevrolet Impala.

The expedition failed as they didn’t find anything, however they continued to meet everyday at 420pm and the number became the identification code for marijuana and it spreads all over the the country.

This is just one of the many legends behind the 4.20 code. Today the 20th of April (4.20) is the national day of marijuana in the US, which is celebrated with gatherings and festivals from all the Cannabis lovers.
