Written by: Officer Jermaine Galloway

The quick answer may be “not really”.  Now to clarify, let’s highlight what 420 means, how it is associated with today’s cannabis climate, and most importantly, what you all can expect to see at the street, school and community level.

420, four twenty, and 4-20 are all known as the “National Stoner Holiday” or the universal time and day to get high.  This is the special day for cannabis users and is highlighted through popular culture.  You will hear terms, or phrases, such as “419, got a minute?” or “421, I’m running late”.
