It all began in 1971, at San Raphael High School in Mary County, California. A group of friends, a passion for marijuana, a special scavenger hunt and a code word...

You know the story, more or less. And if you don't, the video below sums it up masterfully.

If you prefer, this this article from Time magazine tells the story in (almost) 420 words.

But, if you want to go back to the origins, here are the Waldos, the group of teenagers (now quite grown up) who in 1971 gave rise to the term "420":

The Waldos

The Waldos, the group of (former) teenagers who gave rise, more or less consciously, to the mythology of "420".

A virtual celebration

Whatever the story, the most important thing is that there is a day dedicated to our beloved plant (which fully deserves it). Due to the Covid 19 pandemic that still paralyzes much of the planet, social activities are severely limited in many places, but luckily you can also join virtual events like the one organized by Weedmaps, called Even higher together, where you can meet the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Mike Tyson, G-Eazy, Rebelution's Eric Rachmany, Berner, The Alchemist, TOKiMONSTA, Ms. Pat, Too $hort, Jaleel White, Bam Marley, and more.

Virtual 420 celebration by Weedmaps

The best 4/20 events of North America 2021

There are many more virtual events to participate in. This guide, published by Leafly, lists the best virtual 4/20 events in North America.

But if you are not too much of a social event type, you can choose to celebrate the party alone or with a very small circle of friends, always respecting the rules of the place where you are. 

How To Prepare For A 420 Smoking Session With Your Friends

Pause magazine gives some interesting tips on how to best enjoy your weed with friends. These tips are also valid in case of a virtual party.

Choose your favorite strain

Whether you've decided that April 20 is the perfect date to try cannabis for the first time, or you're a seasoned smoker, this comprehensive guide is for you. It will help you understand the mysteries of weed and help you choose the best strain for you.

High on music

There is evidence that there is a strong connection between cannabis and music, and that cannabis takes the experience of listening to music to another level. That's why it's important to carefully choose the playlist for your 420 celebration.
I can't choose the music for you, but I do want to share some of my favorite tracks. Here they are.

Afroman - Because I Got High

This song by Afroman is a must for me: with its cheerfulness and light-heartedness it immediately creates the right mood.

Kendrick Lamar Ft. Dr. Dre, “The Recipe”

I also like all the tracks on this list:

The 15 Greatest Stoner Songs

From Little Feat to Bob Marley via Ben Harper, a selection of great classics from the influential Rolling Stone magazine.

The eye wants its share too

A good movie can help set the mood, provide topics of conversation, or just keep us entertained. There are many suitable for the purpose, here are some of my favorites.

Saving Grace

A great comedy! A widow with a green thumb manages to turn her life around thanks to pot. 

Our idiot Brother

A brilliant comedy, whose protagonist, Ned Rochlin, after attempting to sell pot to a cop, finds himself continually interfering with the lives of his three sisters...

Paulette

A story that starts in the Parisian suburbs and hatred for foreigners and then turns completely around thanks to cannabis. 


Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle

This is a classic comedy stoner film, as well as the first episode of a hilarious series starring these two irresistible friends.



Reefer madness

 This is a 1936 American propaganda film that aims to warn the public about the dangers of drugs, particularly cannabis. Seen today, it appears unintentionally satirical and is a good document to understand how much progress humanity has made towards liberalization.


 

A call to action

4/20 is also a good time to take action. Do something in favor of cannabis liberalization at the location where you are. If you're in the United States, for example, you can sign the petition urging President Biden to Grant "Federal Cannabis Clemency."

Let's celebrate with $200 discount

Weed day special offer

The cannabis day is is also the day to find many special offers. For the occasion Harvest Brothers, the North American distributor of Linfa, has decided to apply a discount of $200 dollars: for this week you can buy Linfa for only $899, free shipping and first grow kit included!
What are you waiting for: let's celebrate Weed Day together and start growing your favorite plant at home!
