Today is April 20th, or, for those "in the know," "4-20."

As someone who has never smoked "herb," I was in the dark as to the significance of this terminology however, working in the F.M. radio industry for the last 20+ years, I have certainly been surrounded by those who have.

There are certainly plenty of songs written about it over the years.

When I have asked about the origin of the term, I have never gotten a consistent answer.  The folks at have determined the genesis of the term which has nothing to do with police codes, the number of compunds found in Mary Jane, etc.

While posession and/or use of weed is still illegal, there has been a shift in American's attitudes towards it in the last few years with legislation even being introduced to, at least, decriminalize it.

What do you think?
