April 20th Is National Weed Day

There’s a day for just about everything, and if you’re fond of smoking pot, you’ll be pleased to know that April 20th is National Weed Day.

Also known as Marijuana Appreciation Day, the annual event celebrates all things pot, including celebrations throughout the more tolerant parts of North America.

The date of National Weed Day (4/20, or just 420) relates to a term used to describe the smoking of pot. According to Wikipedia:

The term originated from a group of teenagers at San Rafael High School in San Rafael, California, United States in 1971. The teens would meet after school at 4:20 p.m. to smoke marijuana at the Louis Pasteur statue.

The biggest National Weed Day events are held at the University of Colorado, Ottawa, Vancouver, and several towns in New Zealand.
