For those of you who don’t smoke pot, you’ve probably wondered these two questions…What exactly does 420 mean? Where did it come from?
According a super reliable source, Herb.co, it comes from a group of California kids who liked to get stoned off a grove of pot plants they found. Originally used as kind of a code, it was around the time the Grateful Dead were getting started – and eventually the band popularized the expression. It’s also the average number of hours a week the average stoner spends watching crazy videos on YouTube.
Hmmm, we had always heard 420 was the police code for someone smoking weed.
