That’s right, 420 became the shorthand for marijuana use, depending on who you believe, back in the 1970s. Some thought 420 was some sort of police code for pot crimes. Others thought it was a reference to Bob Dylan’s song “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35,” which includes the line “Everybody must get stoned.” You see, 12 times 35 equals 420.
Saturday will be a celebration of all things marijuana at dispensaries and other venues across the state as cannabis connoisseurs commemorate 420.
Now that recreational pot is legal.
There are those, however, who definitely don’t view 420 as a day for revelry. Smart Approaches to Marijuana, a Virginia-based group that opposed Michigan’s marijuana legalization proposal, sent letters this week to lawmakers in seven states that are considering legalizing pot, urging them to reject the proposals.
“It’s part of the cultural lexicon and will continue to be a symbol,” said Jeffrey Hank, an East Lansing attorney who was instrumental in the 2018 Michigan ballot initiative to legalize marijuana for adult recreational use. “I’ve heard all these rumors and legends about its true genesis. But it’s really just a day of celebration. We use the phrase all year, but there’s only one day that’s 420.”
But the real 420 legend started in Marin County, California, when a group of five high school pals said they would meet after school at 4:20 p.m. to smoke weed. That transformed into the shorthand of 420, which has become a not-so-underground way to say “let’s get high.”
