According to CNN, Chris Conrad — curator of the Oaksterdam Cannabis Museum in Oakland — said to number 420 started out as a secret code among the secondary school students in the decade of the 70'.

A group of friends at San Rafael high School in Marin County — who called themselves "the Waldos — often gather at 4:20 p.m. to smoke. Not only were they out of school, but their parents were still at work, allowing you the time to get high.

From there, the 4:20 and the time became a code for use in the view of their parents, and gradually spread from there.

Get out of bed – it's wake and bake time! Happy 420!!
