Hey guys, it’s 4/20! You know what that means right? Well, you see, 420 is the police code for when you bust someone for… wait, what’s that? Oh, 420 was never a police code for anything, never mind possession of marijuana? Um… ‘kay, well there must be some easily researched genesis for the obsession with the date 4/20. *Googles*. Hmm, well it looks like it developed in 1971 with a group of teenagers who are now in their 50s as the time of day they’d meet up to get high and spread from there. That is … frighteningly mundane but I guess any excuse for a celebration is a good one.
