The term "420" is commonly associated with cannabis culture. It refers to the act of consuming cannabis or the time of day (4:20 PM) when many cannabis enthusiasts choose to partake. The origin of the term is often attributed to a group of high school students in the 1970s who would meet at 4:20 PM to smoke cannabis. Over time, 420 has become a symbol of cannabis counterculture and is celebrated on April 20th (4/20) each year. It has also been adopted as a code phrase to discreetly refer to cannabis consumption.
