What's the origin of 4/20?
Well, according to Vox, we don't really know the exact origin of 4/20. However, Steve Hager, former editor of High Times, says "that the holiday came out of a ritual started by a group of high school students in the 1970s. As Hager explained, a group of Californian teenagers ritualistically smoked marijuana every day at 4:20 pm. The ritual spread, and soon 420 became code for smoking marijuana. Eventually 420 was converted into 4/20 for calendar purposes, and the day of celebration was born."
While other theories are floating around, there's no real concrete evidence as to the true origin of the holiday, so make up your own.
It may still be illegal to float the river while smoking a doobie, but at least you can crush some beer while floating your favorite river.
