How Did The Term ‘420’ Start? (Infograph)


I will never forget the first time I heard about the term 420. I was at my neighborhood park where I grew up, and my friend who was known for having the best marijuana asked me if I knew what it meant, possibly in an attempt to see if I was ‘down.’ I was honest with him, that I had never heard the term before, because after all I was 12, but that I was curious as to what he was talking about. That was a long time ago, back when the internet wasn’t prevalent. Now kids can do a quick Google search, and land on an article like this one to find out what people are talking about. Our friends at Marijuana.Com just released a cool infographic about the origins of 420, as seen below:

You’ve probably uttered the phrase “420″ in the past as a smoke signal. You’ve probably smoked yourself silly at 4:20. You probably smoke yourself sillier than usual on 4/20 and may plan to do so again on this 4/20. But do you actually know how “420″ became a number, day, and term of lore for stoners and cannabis connoisseurs across the globe?

The following Infographic takes you on a visual tour through 420-s roots, displays facts about 420, and debunks a few erroneous 420 myths. Long live 420.
