Summary
There's a day dedicated to cannabis? Stone Me!

This day is often called simply '420' - April 20th. The term 420 originated at San Rafael High School, in 1971, among a group who called themselves the Waldos. The term was a shorthand code for the time of day the group would meet to smoke pot.

In recent years, it has also gained the nickname, the 'High Holiday'.

Where is Cannabis Legal in the US?

Since 2012, 16 states and Washington, DC, have legalized marijuana for adults over the age of 21. And 36 states have legalized medical marijuana — meaning that a majority of Americans have access to marijuana, whether medically or recreationally.
