420, April 20th



My disclaimer, I am from Oregon, therefore I must blog about pot at least once.

The number 420 (pronounced four-twenty) relates to the consumption of cannabis and elements of its associated culture. The exact origin of the term is unknown. Marijuana users gather on April 20 every year to celebrate and consume marijuana. (Wikipedia)

Fascinating. My uncle, who used to be a cop in Fortuna, CA (by the Oregon border) still goes with his cop buddies in helicopters to go find marijuana staches in the forests. Once a cop, always a cop.

Yeah, it's interesting, even though I am from the land of marijuana forests, I was not aware of this huge cultural reference... Wikipedia had movies and tv shows with it mentioned. I just am clueless I guess.

Yeah, that was it.
