Green, Green.

Ganga glad you came to our blog today? How did 4/20 become “4/20?” I was wondering the same thing. Here’s some helpful information from our friend, Mr. Wikipedia:

420, 4:20 or 4/20 (pronounced four-twenty) refers to consumption of cannabis and, by extension, a way to identify oneself with cannabis subculture.

The term originated from a group of teenagers at San Rafael High School in San Rafael, California, United States in 1971.[3][4] The teens would meet after school at 4:20 p.m. to smoke marijuana at the Louis Pasteur statue.

According to an April 2009 article on the The Huffington Post, the group called itself the Waldos because its members hung out by a wall after school. Writer Ryan Grim, citing interviews with anonymous Waldos, claims that the group met by the statue at 4:20 p.m. to begin a search for a crop of abandoned cannabis growing near Point Reyes that they had heard about. They never found the stash, Grim writes, but smoked plenty of marijuana while looking for it.

However you plan to spend this Tuesday 4/20 afternoon, go in peace.

And one more shout out – Happy Earth Week.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
