The holiday is said to have originated during the 1970's in California, amongst a group of friends who called themselves "the Waldos." This friend group would come together every day after school to smoke weed at 4:20 pm. What started as an idea became a ritual for the Waldos, and before long, the term 420 and its association with cannabis were widely popularized. One of the founding members, Waldo Dave, had a sibling who was good friends with Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh. It's said that the Grateful Dead were influential in the amplification of the 420 movement.

While many other stories of 420's origins have floated around, this particular one has been fact-checked by many and is seen as the most valid explanation of the movement's beginnings. One thing is for certain: from the moment that the term '420' was coined, it has represented a desire to come together and celebrate a shared love for cannabis.
