Historic 4-20 Celebration!!!
High Times to Hold First Recreational Competition in the US in Denver— The Rocky Mountain High may never come down again after this April 20th marijuana smoke-a-thon in Denver. The “420” marijuana holiday is expected to draw more than 50,000 pot enthusiasts to Denver’s Civic Center Park. At EXDO Event Center, just a couple miles away from Civic Center Park, thousands are expected to attend the High Times event as judges from around the world vote for the best in marijuana.
What is the story behind 4-20?
I have had heard more versions than I can count. Almost as many versions as I have heard of the “true” meaning of OG. And everyone swears that their is the honest to god true version. I have no idea. But I AM contemplating making up a few more to throw into the mix just to see how long they take to circulate back to me (evil grin). In the meantime, here are some different perspectives to contemplate:
