According to Snopes, no police department has ever used radio call code 420 for anything marijuana related. That was the story I heard when I was stoned.

The real skinny was a group of high school students in San Rafael, Calif. in 1971 used the code “420 Louis” to tell each other to meet by the statue of Louis Pasteur outside the school at 4:20 p.m. for a smoke session. Jokers, smokers and midnight tokers.

For pot smokers, everyday is a day of celebration. Who am I kidding? moochie hippies.
