The best day of the year is coming up! Only 4 more days till 4-20!
THE GLASS HOUSE WANTS TO HELP YOU PREPARE! So, stop by on 4/19 for some AMAZING deals AND a live broadcast with BOOM 94.5 from 3:00-5:00 p.m.
Last year, we did some research on the origins of the term “420” in relation to the fine flower. You can read the “official” story here. This year, we thought we’d share the Urban Dictionary definition. Urban Dictionary is the next best method of research after Google Image Search, Safe Search Off. In case you were wondering.
ANYWAY. We liked Urban Dictionary’s definition because it contains phrases like “pot-smoke wiseacres,” and because it reminds us that “someone’s parents out there invented the term 4/20”:
“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 number 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.”
In the words of Bill Nye, “noooooooooooooow you knooooooooooooooooow.”
BUT! MOST IMPORTANTLY! Whatever your 4-20 plans, remember to stop by the Glass House on 4-19 to pick up the many, many tools you’ll need to make your 4-20 memorable. Or, unmemorable, as the case may be.
