In 1971, five high school students – Steve Capper, Dave Reddix, Jeffrey Noel, Larry Schwartz, and Mark Gravich – in San Rafael, California, calling themselves the Waldos because "their chosen hang-out spot was a wall outside the school", used the term in connection with a 1971 plan to search for an abandoned cannabis crop that they had learned about, based on a treasure map made by the grower. The Waldos designated the Louis Pasteur statue on the grounds of San Rafael High School as their meeting place, and 4:20 p.m. as their meeting time. The Waldos referred to this plan with the phrase "4:20 Louis". After several failed attempts to find the crop, the group eventually shortened their phrase to simply "4:20", which ultimately evolved into a code-word that the teens used to mean consuming cannabis.
Mike Edison says that Steven Hager of High Times was responsible for taking the story about the Waldos to "mind-boggling, cult-like extremes" and "suppressing" all other stories about the origin of the term. Hager wrote "Stoner Smart or Stoner Stupid?", in which he attributed the early spread of the phrase to Grateful Dead followers – after Reddix became a roadie for the Dead's bassist, Phil Lesh – and called for 4:20 p.m. to be the socially accepted hour of the day to consume cannabis.
Mike: See you at 420!

Má is a Chinese word for cannabis, is represented by the Han character 麻. The term Má, used to describe medical marijuana by 2700 BCE, is the oldest recorded name for the Cannabis plant.
The word Má has been used to describe the cannabis plant since before the invention of writing five-thousand years ago. Má might share a common root with the Proto-Semitic word mrr, meaning "bitter." Evidence of the earliest human cultivation of Má was found off the coast of mainland China, on the island of Taiwan. Chinese travelers who moved west carrying seeds of the Má plant also brought the plant's name with them, the word then becoming integrated into the neighboring languages.
