Happy Weed Day to all!
In 1971, a group of five High School friends from San Rafael, California, known as the Waldos, went on a hunt for an elusive marijuana patch rumored to be located in the Point Reyes forest. They would meet at 4:20 pm by a wall outside their school to start their explorations in their smoke-filled Chevy Impala. The patch was never found, but the smoking ritual remained and 420 became their codeword for smoking pot. At that time, the Grateful Dead moved to San Rafael and the Waldos fives started hanging out with them. From there, the term spread through the Dead underground. High Times eventually got wind of the term, and started incorporating it into everything they were doing, helping take it global. Thus an obscure codename, as urban legend has it, turned into an annual celebration and over the years April 20 became some kind of national holiday for marijuana activists.
To celebrate Weed Day, as it is now known, “World War D – The Case against prohibitionism, roadmap to controlled re-legalization” is available for the amazing low price of $4.20 for the ebook version.
The print version is available for 2×4.20=$8.40 (+$4.20 for shipping/Handling in the US only).
The offer expires on Sunday, April 21, at midnight Pacific time.
Don’t miss on this opportunity to get your own copy of World War-D, or get extra copies for your friends and family.
For more about the history of the urban legend and the various celebrations around the world, The Huffington Post is running a special section on 420.
