The Weed Day is a day that cannabis enthusiasts celebrate as if it were a holiday. It’s like the 4/20 for weed enthusiasts and people who have a special interest in cannabis. Even though the Weed Day has been celebrated for many years, no one knows for sure when it was first marked in an official capacity. The most popular explanation is that it’s an allusion to April 20th, a date which is significant to undercover stoners due to its association with the annual High Times Cannabis Cup.
But what does the Weed Day mean? Is it more than just a marker for time spent smoking weed or is it something that has deep significance? Let’s take a look at some of the most common theories and see if we can uncover clues as to why this date exists at all.

What is the Weed Day? Why Is It Celebrated?

The Weed Day is a day that cannabis enthusiasts celebrate as if it were a holiday. It’s like the 4/20 for weed enthusiasts and people who have a special interest in cannabis. The most popular explanation is that it’s an allusion to April 20th, a date which is significant to undercover stoners due to its association with the annual High Times Cannabis Cup. Another theory about why the Weed Day exists is because of the many references to marijuana on April 20th in “marijuana culture.”
The Weed Day is marked for these reasons:
-It’s a day when cannabis enthusiasts and people with special interests can celebrate their love for weed without feeling judgment from others
-It’s a day when long time smokers can commemorate how much they have smoked over their lifetime
-It’s a day when new stoners can come out of the closet and start their journey into the world of cannabis

All You Need to Know About April 20th

April 20th is the anniversary of two things:
1) the United States’ first cannabis law, which was passed on April 20, 1937; and
2) the founding of High Times magazine, which was also founded on April 20th.
>>The Weed Day commemorates these two events by celebrating cannabis as if it were a holiday.

The High Times Theory

One of the most popular ideas about the Weed Day is that it’s a reference to the annual High Times Cannabis Cup. This theory holds that the Weed Day was first marked on April 20th, which is significant due to its association with the annual High Times Cannabis Cup.
Why is April 20th important? Most people who celebrate this day do so because they believe in cannabis and what it can do for them or their loved ones. They believe that they can use it as an aid in moments of weakness and desperation and are excited to experience the many benefits of weed. The idea behind 4/20 is that smoking marijuana can be used as a coping mechanism.
Cannabis enthusiasts have been celebrating 4/20 as a day to enjoy pot since at least 1969 when High Times published its first issue with an article about “The Great Marijuana Smoke-Out.”

The Origin of 4/20

Some people believe that the Weed Day is a quote from Bob Marley. He is said to have once said, “One joint f*cked my head up for good.” But this is highly unlikely given that Marley died in 1981, fifty years before 4/20 was celebrated.
Others believe that the origins of 4/20 come from the US government’s decision to tax cannabis at 20 percent on April 20th in 1937. This could be said to be symbolic since cannabis remains illegal under federal law.
But why celebrate this day? What does it mean or what significance does it hold? There are many theories as to why 4/20 exists but no one can seem to agree on one answer. One thing that is clear: 4/20 has become an important day for weed enthusiasts and those who enjoy marijuana culture.
4/20: What Does It Really Mean? The History of the Weed Day
The origin of the 420 date is still unknown but some say it’s from Bob Marley’s quote “One joint f*cked my head up for good.”

The Dark Web and Silk Road Theory

This theory is pretty simple but also likely the most popular. It states that the date of 4/20 coincides with April 20th because it’s a day when cannabis enthusiasts can purchase marijuana without being identified by law enforcement. The term “420” has become synonymous with marijuana, especially among stoners and potheads. So, this theory states that the Weed Day is actually a code for something illegal and hidden from the public eye.
There are other theories about what 4/20 means as well. One of them is that it was created in order to celebrate weed’s legalization in Amsterdam on April 20th of 1978. Another theory is that it’s meant as an allusion to smoking weed before everyone else wakes up on April 20th.
However, these theories don’t account for the fact that many cannabis users celebrate 4/20 and use it as a day to gather with friends and get high together even though they know that today isn’t a day where they can buy marijuana legitimately (yet).

Conclusion

“No to 4/20.”
The legalization of marijuana has been in the making for years. When the most recent iteration of the law — Amendment 64 — was passed in 2012, it marked the end of cannabis prohibition in Colorado. But as you might have noticed, on April 20th, Colorado’s “Weed Day,” cannabis enthusiasts are still celebrating.

The best way to celebrate 4/20 is to educate yourself on the history of the weed day. There’s a lot of misinformation floating around, so it’s important to know what you’re celebrating and why. The history of the weed day is more than just about cannabis. It’s about freedom, liberty and independence. It’s about questioning authority and challenging social norms. And it’s about tolerance, understanding and collaboration.

It’s important for everyone to understand what 4/20 really means before promoting it in their own communities. Do your research and spread the word!
