YouSpeak: Legalizing Marijuana
Today marks unofficial holiday for drug’s advocates
Today, 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.
In light of today’s date, we thought we’d make this week’s “YouSpeak” question: “Should marijuana be legalized?”
“YouSpeak” appears each Monday.
