wow weird. never heard of national pot day b4 o_O

heres some info i found.



Known Myths
Police dispatch code for smoking pot is 420. The number 420 is not police radio code for anything, anywhere. Checks of criminal codes suggest that the origin is neither Californian nor federal. For instance, California Penal Code 420 defines as a misdemeanor the hindrance of use of public lands.
There are approximately 420 active chemicals in marijuana. Actually, there are approximately 315 active chemicals in marijuana. This number goes up and down depending on which plant is used.
April 20th is National Pot Smokers Day. Well, it is now; but that wasn't the origin.
April 20th is Hitler's birthday. Yes, it is his birthday. But, as 420 started out as a time, not a date, his birthday had nothing to do with it.
April 20th is the date of the Columbine school shootings. This happened after the term was already in use.
4:20 is tea time for pot-smokers in Holland. Tea time in Holland is at 5:30 pm, or is it 2:30 pm? Seems no one is quite sure when the wonderful people of Holland drink their tea.


The Origin Revealed
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.

It wasn't in ours :-D. We're clean. Thursday was National High Five day actually LOL. I just realized how nice our school is. No "gangstas" because all those kind of people come from the ghetto (very far away) and there aren't gangstas here anyway. Cowboys?! Damn that's amazing. Never knew. I loved cowboys when I was a kid and always wanted to be one but now I know I don't... Meddling with gangstas.

Man my school is nice! Come here you guys!

Sometimes I miss Dobie Gillis and Eddie Haskell and the Beav. Those were the days of innocence.

Kickers has to do with the bio mass left behind the livestock after they eat...... Hard to believe you live in Texas and don't get that one yet. :)

All of these recognition days are pretty funny as are the myths.;)
