THE HISTORY OF 420

THE HISTORY OF 420

Stoner Dude got on the line and announced today’s date, April 20, is a special day among his people. Stoner Dude reported high school kids in the early 1970s started getting together after school at 4:20 p.m. to smoke pot, creating the term “420” to signify getting high, so 4/20 has since become the national holiday for pot smokers. After Gary explained that Stoner Dude’s theory wasn’t exactly correct –the actual story behind the importance of 420 is that it’s the police code for a marijuana bust – Howard commented today was also Ralph’s birthday. Stoner Dude then brought up today was Carmen Electra and George Takei’s birthday as well, while Artie noted Hitler was born today too.
