Happy 4/20! Every April 20, marijuana smokers dedicate a day to cannabis culture. Whether you smoke weed or not, you know about this 4:20 counterculture holiday. So celebrate it with these funny memes and learn more about 420 and the positive effects of marijuana. But how did it all begin? According to a New York Times article from 2009, "the significance of April 20 dates to a ritual begun in the early 1970s in which a group of Northern California teenagers smoked marijuana every day at 4:20 p.m. Word of the ritual spread and expanded to a yearly event in various places. Soon, marijuana aficionados were using “420” as a code for smoking and using it as a sign-off on fliers for concerts where the drug would be plentiful."
