The History of 4/20
According to a story shared by Time magazine, in the early 1970s, a group of five California high school students (nicknamed the “Waldos”) started a tradition of meeting at 4:20 pm to partake in their favorite cannabis varieties. The group began using “420” as their secret code word for marijuana.
Years passed, and one of the members of the Waldos, Dave Reddix, went on to become a roadie for the Grateful Dead. As the legend goes, a 1990 flyer created by fans of the band invited others to enjoy cannabis on 4/20 at 4:20 pm, and it took off from there. As of 1998, the Waldos were officially credited with creating the idea of 4/20, a day for gathering together and enjoying cannabis with your fellow enthusiasts.
