four-twenty (4:20) (420) (4-20)
1. n. Commonly known as the time to smoke pot. It has come to mean everything from the act of smoking, the stuff that's smoked, and the optimum smoking time. Because 99% of today's culture DOESN'T know what 420 means, it has become a code people use to identify and talk with each other without outsiders knowing. Also known for the date, April 20th, which is the day to smoke pot all day, "the hippie holiday." Most pot smokers use 420 for just that, but, this date also happens to be Hitler's birthday which most possibly connected to or resulted in the selection of the April 20th date of the Columbine tragedy.
Note: I get a large amount of emails trying to correct me, saying that 420 is actually the California police code for possession of marijuana. Sorry- but that's an urban legend. Here are the facts straight from the LAPD: "There are several codes of law in CA that dictate drug offences. The Penal Code(PC) and the Health and Safety Code(H&S). Most of the drug offences are covered by the H&S. There is no 420 H&S, there is a 420 PC and it is "Preventing entry onto Public property". We sometimes have codes that the dispatcher uses on the radio to let us know what kind of call we are going to, but it usually is the same as the code section. Here are some of the Marijuana charges:
11359 H&S Possesion of MJ for Sales
11360(A)H&S Sales of MJ
