By now, just about everyone knows the origins of the term “420”. What started out as a code word for codeword for pot-smoking, treasure hunting high schoolers in 1971 San Rafael, California was eventually picked up by The Grateful Dead. Since then, the term has evolved and changed. Airbnb and Craigslist ads advertise 402-friendly hot spots, and the twax crowd has adopted 710 (oil upsidedown) to commemorate the best time to dab.
Nowadays, 420 is a global quasi-holiday. There are likely tons of things to do in your area (if you live in a cool place) or group of friends you can chief with. Even so, you might be at a loss for things to do while high. Well, puzzle no more! Here are 42 things you can do to celebrate 420!
