2. The Origins of 420

The term 420 originated at San Rafael High School, in 1971, among a group of about a dozen pot-smoking wiseacres who called themselves the Waldos, who are now pushing 60. The term was shorthand for the time of day the group would meet, at the campus statue of Louis Pasteur, to smoke pot. Intent on developing their own discreet language, they made 420 code for a plan to search for an abandoned cannabis crop that they had learned about, based on a treasure map made by the grower’s dead brother.

420 eventually became an international code for marijuana. It has been central to cannabis culture ever since – as well as spawning an annual global celebration.
