According to Time Magazine, 420 can be traced to 1971, when a group of five students at San Rafael High School in Marin County, California began meeting at 4:20 p.m. to smoke marijuana. The actual numbers “420” don't have much symbolic significance, Time reported in 2016.


However, many believe it really comes from South America where Pope Francisco, and Dr. Francisco come from.  Dr. Fran was born on 420, the year is yet to be determined and some say he yet to really be born.
