April 20, has special significance for marijuana users. The term ‘420’ was allegedly coined back [...]in 1971 when a group of San Rafael, Calif., high school students decided to meet up at 4:20 one afternoon to smoke a joint. The term stuck and quickly became shorthand for lighting up. In a nod to 420, proponents of the drug have unofficially declared April 20 a cannabis holiday.
We thought we’d make this week’s “YouSpeak” question: “Should marijuana be legalized?”
