The Story Behind 420
Apparently a group of teenagers that called themselves the Waldo's because they used to meet at a wall outside of school learnt about an abandoned cannabis crop so they went searching for it. They designated the statue of Louis Pasteur at San Rafael High School as there meet up and at 4:20 pm they were to meet their. Hence the name 420, after many failed attempts at finding the crop 420 became a recurring term of phrase which eventually ended up as a code word for people smoking weed.
A guy called Steve Hager went on to right an article about the Waldo's called Are you Stoner Smart or Stoner Stupid' in which he referred to the term 4:20 as the socially acceptable time to smoke pot. Now April 20th has become a counterculture holiday in North America and now worldwide were people come together to smoke cannabis.Held at San Francisco Golden gate park and in London's Hyde Park.
So there you go there is the story behind 420 a day celebrated by many worldwide complimented with music that usually ends at 420. I guess your wondering why its simply not legalized or why the police dont stop it but its simply impossible to stop that many people from congregating and smoking pot. Personally i think it should be legalized even if it is only on that day, if you have never been go even if you dont bun its an amazing experience just to be with so many people that all share the same love.Stoners aren't violent people its just a jam with music and food and mellow people. Go next year whatever country your in enjoy it. embrace it.
