The Origins of 420 as a Day of Celebrating Marijuana

Marc Emery | Posted 06.19.2013 | Canada British Columbia
Marc Emery

The biggest celebration day in cannabis culture is April 20. The April 20 (4/20) celebration originally started in the mid-1970s as the time of day after school, 4:20 p.m., for high school students in San Rafael, California to meet and smoke pot. The phrase "I'll see at you at 4:20" became code for, "I'll be there to smoke a joint with you after classes are over". Its origins in Canada happened in 1995 when two of my HEMP BC employees came to me at my desk and asked, "Marc, we'd like to have a 'Four-Twenty' celebration on April 20. We'd like your permission and approval to put on a Four-Twenty concert and rally and fun time in Victory Square next door." I responded, "No, we can't do that."

Trudeau on Terrorism: A Sane Voice in Politics

When an act of terror occurs, it takes time to assess what exactly happened. Two hours after the blast, blood was still being spilled, explosives were still being sniffed out, and loved ones were still being contacted to share the terrible news. It was in this chaos that Mr. Trudeau was asked to react -- even before the President of the United States, the FBI, or the State Governor had reacted. What Mr. Trudeau did was answer the truth. A novel concept for some, but a welcome philosophy to Canadians tired of the dreary, divisive diatribe. We don't know who did this, but surely there are ways we can look at root causes and prevent future bloodshed.
