Price of Elon Musk's Twitter bid is yet another '420' pot joke
Every year on April 20th people celebrate their love of marijuana by consuming the drug in whatever capacity they can and sharing their love for it online and this year is no different.
The origin of 4/20 dates back to 1971 when five students, referred to as "The Waldos" from San Rafael High School would meet at 4:20 p.m. to smoke. They chose that time because extracurriculars had ended already, reducing the number of people who could catch them.
To communicate about their meet-up in public, they used the code word "420".
Eventually one of the students, Dave Reddix, worked with Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh and the band popularized the term.
Now, thanks to those five students, and the Grateful Dead, we get to watch people share hilarious memes celebrating weed.
