How 4/20 Became ‘Weed Day’

How 4/20 Became ‘Weed Day’ The legend of ‘Weed Day’ began as a code for a group of California high schoolers in the early 1970s, who would meet at 4:20 p.m. to get high. The friends would meet at time to smoke, which was ideal because it was after school and their parents were not yet home. According to Time, the term 420 would later spread, as one of the friends, Dave Reddix, got a job as a roadie for the Grateful Dead and began using it to promote the band and invite people to smoke on April 20 at 4:20 p.m. Presently, 420 holds a significant place in pop culture, with weed use exploding in popularity in movies, music and more. Marijuana is now legal for recreational use in nine states.
