4/20: Ways to Celebrate the High Holiday in 2019

Posted by on

420 or 4/20 or 4-20 or 4.20...however you read or write it, it is the quintessential stoner holiday, and it is on a Saturday in 2019 for the first time in years! While 4/20 proves to be enjoyable for cannabis advocates and aficionados year after year, being able to celebrate the holiday through the entire weekend is sure to bring joy to many. Even mainstream companies are getting on board now that more states are legalizing cannabis, including Carls Jr. who will be testing a CBD infused burger at one of their Denver locations exclusively on 4/20.

So,why 4/20? While some people think the term 420 originated from a police code, the association of weed and 420 originated in the 1970s with group of San Rafael High School friends known as the Waldos (because their chosen hang-out spot was a wall outside the school) who used the term in connection with a fall 1971 plan to search for an abandoned cannabis crop that they had learned about in a nearby forest. They designated the Louis Pasteur statue on the grounds of San Rafael High School as their meeting place, and 4:20 p.m. as their meeting time. The group referred to this plan as "4:20 Louis". After having no success in finding the crop, they eventually shortened their phrase to "4:20", which quickly spread through the early 70s stoner culture and has now evolved into a codeword that cannabis consumers use on the daily. Today, it is celebrated by anyone who appreciates the cannabis plant, even if they love hip-hop music or shoes more.

According to Traffic Roots, in 2016 on April 20th there were astronomical sales that surpassed $37M with an increase in over 30% of foot traffic into dispensaries. Since 2016, we have seen huge states like California (worlds 5th largest economy) come on board and even a country went fully recreational, Canada! One can only assume this trend is going one way: forward.

As we celebrate, it is essential that we continue to advocate. There is still lots of work to do in the area of cannabis policy reform.

"The growing prominence of 4/20 as a cultural phenomenon speaks to the growing acceptance of marijuana legalization by the public, pundits, and even among an increasing number of politicians, said NORML Political Director Justin Strekal. While states continue to blaze the trail forward with regard to regulating the legal medical and adult-use markets, we have observed a significant increase in the publics belief that the mere consumption of cannabis should not lead to a loved one being arrested or adversely affected by discriminatory housing, educational, or policing policies.

So...what IS happening on 4/20/2019? Lets see.
