Word on the Street

420 (fohrtwen-tee) noun. Its mainly in reference to time, when ballers light one up, smoke one out… Puff.

Usage example: “Can’t wait til 420, I’m going to blaze out of my mind.”

Word history: Supposedly “420” was a code used by the San Rafael police department, however, the department has always denied this. A group known as the “Waldos” claim to have originated 420 in San Rafael in 1971. The group met every day at 4:20 PM after school and eventually began to use 420 as a code for marijuana so they could talk about pot in front of parents and teachers. Often followed by the great urge of the munchies.

Just ask Paris Hilton. All the cool kids do it!
