But today, people often think of 420 in a different light. The term “four-twenty” was originally coined in the early 1970s by a group of California high schoolers who would meet at 4:20 pm to search for an abandoned marijuana crop. Today, four U.S. states and a handful of cities/jurisdictions have legalized the use of medical and recreational marijuana. Only 11 U.S. states fully outlaw marijuana use.
