Planning a ‘4/20’ marijuana celebration in San Diego? Let us know about it


If you’re planning an event to celebrate “4/20” — international cannabis day — let us know. If we get enough items tied to the celebration — which is always held on April 20 — we’ll publish a list.

This will be the first year that 4/20 will be celebrated in California since recreational marijuana went on sale statewide on January 1. By the way, it’s still illegal to smoke weed in public.

There’s disagreement over the origins of the term 4/20. But most seem to believe that it was coined by a group of students at California’s San Rafael High School in 1971. The term loosely refers to marijuana smoking, or possession. Or both.
