Paper mm .
It came into common use after the movie Pulp Fiction, if you look at any clock in the movie it will be on 4:20. The term wasn't invented by the movie just made popular by it.
The earliest use of the term began among a group of teenagers in San Rafael, California in 1971. Calling themselves the Waldos, because "their chosen hang-out spot was a wall outside the school," the group first used the term in connection to a fall 1971 plan to search for an abandoned cannabis crop that they had learned about. The Waldos designated the Louis Pasteur statue on the grounds of San Rafael High School as their meeting place, and 4:20 pm as their meeting time. The Waldos referred to this plan with the phrase "4:20 Louis". Multiple failed attempts to find the crop eventually shortened their phrase to simply "4:20", which ultimately evolved into a codeword that the teens used to mean pot-smoking in general.
It was Hitlers birthday, That has something to do with it.. in spite of this maybe? On the clock, on certain shifts anyways, either 4:20 in the afternoon, or 4:20 in the morning represents the ideal time to light up after a long day at work, or just before a start time of 5, giving enough time to get baked and air off a bit ;) <br />
4:20am feels like a good time for one last burn before bedtime ;)
No clue, but I'm 420ing right now at 7:55pm! :-))
No idea actually. Good question.
I know it is inaccurate, but a number of my pot smoker friends say it's Bob Marley's real death day.
