It’s High Time for That Cannabis Holiday: 4/20
Uploaded on Apr 19, 2011
The Internet is up in smoke in anticipation of 4/20. Practically a national holiday for college kids and aging hippies alike, 4/20 celebrates the consumption of cannabis, Mary Jane, pot, whatever you like to call it. According to Wikipedia, the holiday got its origins in 1971 from a group of teenagers in San Rafael, Calif., who liked to meet up at 4:20 p.m. to get high. As a result, 4/20 became their secret code word and 40 years later, the code word for an entire nation.

. . . “Every year for the past decade or more, Ottawa, like many other cities around the world, has had a 420 celebration of some sort. And in true Ottawa fashion, we don’t do it anywhere near the same as any other city. Most cities have a single central location that is agreed upon beforehand. Up until last year, 420 Ottawa was an organically-formed event where the majority of participants went to Major’s Hill Park (right across the street from that eyesore of a US embassy) for the huge party/drum circle that occurs there, while another crowd would form on Parliament Hill to break the law on the front lap of the seat of power.” . . .
