View Full Version : 4/20

Yeah, I know for most of you, this day has passed, but I'd like to give a shout out to my favorite drug in the world.

Thanks marijuana. You're a great friend. Happy birthday.

Now it's time for me to smoke up a bowl.

Agreed sir, agreed.

My friend died this morning. 4/20. I no longer associate this day with weed. Not that I ever did. In past years, it just gave me an excuse to ditch school.

21-04-2005, 05:39 AM
I fought temptation...and won :)

My niece was born today... and I didn't smoke.
However, if the little one wouldn't have been born... I would have more than likely.

4/20 = 1/5

21-04-2005, 10:55 AM
Yeah yeah nice math

Now pass the Joint over dude

I think it was Hitler's B-day yesterday to... where's the love?

Bend over in front of the new Pope

You may find the love your looking for

You know, I usually don't get real bent out of shape about posts because it's just useless. But seriously Ranman, watch what you say.

I really don't see how 4/20 has anything to do with the Pope.

Sorry, Kels, about your friend.

I've heard either that 4/20 is (1) Hitler's birthday or (2) the birthday of the guy who invented LSD. In either case, it's strange how one would celebrate either of those birthdays with marijuana. But, whatever, it gives me a reason.

Actually, it is supposed to be based on LAPD code for a drug arrest...420. I say supposed to be, because that is actually just an urban legend. I can't remember exactly what the number they use is, but it isn't 420.

420 is not used, ever, however "420 PC" is "Preventing entry onto Public property"

actual weed codes
11359 H&S Possesion of MJ for Sales
11360(A)H&S Sales of MJ
11357(B)H&S Possesion of less than 1 oz of MJ

Heres some ideas for you

There are 420 chemical components in marijuana - that one is bollocks, theres about 315 active chemicals in marijuana depending on which plant is used
420 is the fireman's code for "stop, drop and roll" (as in a joint) - thats probably about as true as the police code idea
4/20 is bob marlys bithday - now that is crap - his birthday is February 6th
4:20 is a code for a type of marijuana called hydro when used digitially it comes out to H20 (the 4 being an upside-down H) - eh??
Dr. Albert Hoffman's Lab note entry describing his experience with the newly discovered LSD-25 was entered into his Lab book at 4:20 - ok...
420 may also come from Bob Dylan's Rainy Day Woman #12 and 35. The "everybody must get stoned song." 12 X 35 = 420 - wow, tenuous
In Amsterdam, at 4:20 pm everyday (during the work week) the bells go off and everyone who wants to use it, goes out for a SMOKE break - maybe??
4/20 is the aniversary of the columbine disaster - yeah but the term was used long before then

who knows....

edit: wow, how obscure: "avril lavigne also means 420 in french" - hang on, no it doesnt

edit (again):

i just found this, maybe just as much bollocks as the other ideas

According to Steven Hager, editor of High Times, the term 420 originated at San Rafael High School, in 1971, among a group of about a dozen pot-smoking wiseacres who called themselves the Waldos, who are now pushing 50. The term was shorthand for the time of day the group would meet, at the campus statue of Louis Pasteur, to smoke pot. Intent on developing their own discreet language, they made 420 code for a time to get high, and its use spread among members of an entire generation. While our teens feel that they know something we don't, you can let them in on the fact that it was your generation that came up with the numbers.

A quote from one of the Waldos in the High Times article states, "We did discover we could talk about getting high in front of our parents without them knowing by using the phrase 420." Fortunately, your teenagers will not have that same option.

No, unless you are talking about a different Amsterdam. Any time I have been in Amsterdam, the time of day doesn't seem to make any difference :icon_razz

Aww, congratulations. What's her name?

Ellenor. Ellie or Ella for short.

...Ahem. Ella is not a bad name at all.

As for pot. I dislike pot. It's not my style. I'm more about Substance-D. Slow Death, baby. Reeeeal slow, if ya know what I mean. ;)

24-04-2005, 01:00 AM
That's really cute, Ashley. Congratulations again :)

...Ahem. Ella is not a bad name at all.

I tend to come up with my own nicknames for my nieces and nephews so... maybe I'll just call her Rigby.

Thank you Kelsey. She's a pleasure to have in the family.
