Happy 4/20!

Hello, beautiful people.

It's 4/20!  Now is the time to celebrate! 

We are so deeply grateful for such an amazing community that supports and inspires us to continue working and spreading cannabis awareness throughout the world. We are constantly growing and creating a positive impact on the modern-day society free of prejudice and cannabis illiteracy together with you, and we can't wish for a better companion on this beautiful path!

Today is the day to say thank you for being here and keeping up such great work!

Now, we have heard various different stories about how the 4/20 originated. Here is our version.

In the 70s, some high school kids from San Rafael were gathering to smoke weed after class at the Louis Pasteur's monument. The expression 'It's 420 Louis' became a part of their daily greeting. The expression eventually became popular in the 80s thanks to The Grateful Dead fans. The 4/20 is now celebrated around the world and became a signature cultural event for cannabis enthusiasts.

Have you heard of any other versions of the story? Please let us know in the comments below!

When you are done, come check out this insane giveaway on Instagram: 4/20 Giveaway! Everyone is welcome to join!

Peace,

GD Team!

A group in San Rafael, California that called itself "The Waldos" used the term in connection with the plan to search for an abandoned cannabis plantation in the fall of 1971. After the group members obtained a treasure map from the original grower, they identified a statue of Louis Pasteur on the San Rafael High School site as the location and 4:20 p.m. (4:20 p.m.) as the time for their meeting . The Waldos therefore gave their plan the code name "4:20 Louis".

Happy 420!:grinning:

Bloom, however first came upon the connection when he was given a flier at a Grateful Dead concert at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum in 1990. The flier recounted the now-famous apocryphal tale that 420 was police code for a marijuana arrest in progress....

At times is was the police code for smoking in progress for San Rafael officers radio calls. Kids got wind of it and started using it. We took the police code and turned into a national holiday. When u think about it. Stoners are freaking amazing thinkers
