“420” is coming up. April 20th has evolved into an unofficial “holiday” for some which is observed by smoking or otherwise consuming marijuana. The day has become a global event.
How did this global phenomenon start? It all began in Marin at San Rafael HS years ago.

Our high school students in prior years have reported their classmates getting high multiple times throughout this day beginning at 12:01 am and continuing through 11:59 pm, as well as coming to class high. If you suspect your teen is inclined to get high, we advise that you know your teens’ whereabouts, ensure that they are at school and are supervised after school, and discuss disciplinary consequences at school and at home and the health risks of teen use of marijuana.
The term “420” also has become code for a time to get high not only on April 20th but throughout the year.
