What is 420 Day? Why is 4/20 national weed day? What does it mean, where does it come from and is marijuana legal?


The highest of high holy days for marijuana smokers is coming — National 420 Day. Marijuana Day. Weed Day. Pot Day. Whatever you call it, people are smoking. The day has become synonymous with smoking weed over the years to the point where it’s basically national marijuana day. That’s only getting bigger as pot legalization becomes more and more widespread.

When is 420? What is its origin? Will there be events and festivals? Here’s everything you need to know about the cannabis-crazed day.

When is 4/20?

April 20, 2019. It falls on a Saturday this year.

What is 4/20′s origin and meaning?

April 20 actually has some horrible connotations outside of marijuana. Adolf Hitler was born on April 20, 1889. And on April 20, 1999, the Columbine High School shooting took place. Neither of those are reasons people smoke weed on 4/20, though.

It took off from there, and by 1990 marijuana publication High Times was using the term 420 and eventually bought the website 420.com.

There are 4/20 festivals all over the country, with Colorado being a hotbed for events as marijuana is legal there and the culture has exploded. You can access a massive database of events and festivals here.
