    The first definition in the urbandictionary ...

    1. 420

    So far the majority of you are incorrect.

    420's origin IS known.

    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.

    So there ya go, someone's parents out there invented the term 4/20.

    And remember this:
    There are NOT 420 chemicals in Weed. It's about 315, the num. goes up or down depending on what you're smoking.
    4/20 is NOT police code or Maryjane.
    And that whole shit about Holland and 4/20 over there being "tea time" for smokers isn't true either.

    You guys do the dates wrong. Trying to tell a computer to organize dates in the DD/MM format organizes by day and not in calendar order. [​IMG]

    I believe it's another term used for talking cannibis. More specifically, on the 20th of April. I'm sure a wikipedia search will confirm this?

    I'd say it's you guys who don't know how to write a date. Even Canada gets it right! [​IMG]
