According to legend…
“The term 420 was allegedly coined in 1971 when a group of five students from the San Rafael High School went on a hunt for a plot of marijuana plants that was supposedly growing near the Point Reyes Peninsula Coast Guard Station. They say they met at 4:20pm outside their school to drive to the area and carry out the search many times. They never found the patch, but the numbers 420 did become a useful code for them to communicate with each other.” (www.independent.com.uk)
