A holiday self established by marijuana smokers that takes place on April 20th.

Originally started by a group of college kids who would meet at a statue everyday at 4:20 PM to smoke weed.

Some other drug usage may take place but marijuana is the main one.

Pronounced "four twenty", if you say, "four hundred twenty" you'll look like an idiot.
Me: My dad got so baked yesterday.
You: Why?
Me: It was 4/20.

Hitler's birthday and the anniversary of Columbine. A lot of people smoke weed on 4/20, which is cool but other than that it doesn't look good on the planets reputation.
I'm gonna go smoke weed now.

4/20 is a very awesome day, as long as you're not a parent who's kid got killed at Columbine.

The day where a bunch of people go up to parliament hill (or they go anywhere) and smoke pot (weed) because the police can't get them in trouble because so many other people are doing it too! It's basically the one day that yu can smoke pot without getting into trouble...
Hey, it's 4/20, let's skip school and smoke some pot up on Parliment hill! (Ottawa)

The day after 4/19.

The day to smoke weed. It is based off of what police say when they see people doing drugs ("We have a 4/20 on...").
It is celebrated internationally and people also wear green on that day. It is also Adolf Hitler's birthday, and the date f the Columbine School shootings. Pronounced "four twenty."

Yo man, I got some fresh Columbian weed for us to smoke tomorrow... after all, it is 4/20.

The word 4/20 comes from a couple of things firstly, a young man (greek) by the names kosta h(btw i hear his hot) or so not sure about his full name invented it by smoking tons of weed euuurddaaay at the same time he noticed a pattern in this. Everyday it would be at 4:20 after school... so from there he new he had to start calling it that. Secondly 4/20 is also a cops way of reporting that ppl are smoking weeed. thirdly, an event in amsterdam (weed capital) at the 4th month of the 20th day of the 4th hour of the 20th minute evryone in amsterdam would smoke the mary-jane.
"hey common lets go 4/20 (ppl dont noe wat it is so lets call it that and wont get caught XD)"
" we have a 4/20 in progress at jane and finch"
