It's 4:20 not 4/20

It's a time not a day....

Common myth 1: The day 4/20 commemorates the death and/or birth of reggae musician Bob Marley.

Common myth 2: The number 420 is police radio-code for “marijuana smoking in progress” and that’s how the term originated.

Common myth 3: The date 4/20 is an observation of Adolf Hitler’s birth. 

Common myth 4:  The term “420″ derived from a Bob Dylan song.

Well....In the 70's a group of pubescent CA high school pot smokers referred to themselves as the Waldos due to their chosen hangout spot located outside their high school, a wall.

And just what time did the Waldos meet after being dismissed from school for the day? Yup, you guessed it! 4:20pm. And so, in a nutshell, the term “420″ was by all accounts born.

and Jesus probably wasn't born on the 25th of December. It's a holiday now. No use fighting that battle.

Well now all pot heads know...

They can be celebrating every day at 4:20, not every year on 4/20!

I don't care. And...just so you know, at 4:20 of any hour on 4-20 pot smokers across the nation will be raising a bowl or joint in celebration of 4:20 or 4/20, however you want to refer to it.

Funny how you're ranting about everyone else being wrong while you're wrong yourself.

Not quite a holiday... :-)

Quoting Nikidu:
