Theres a whole writeup about the 420 conspiracy at theinquirer
If you do fear, don't worry. Cash'n'Carrion will provide you with a shiny new tin foil hat - just £420 each.®

But I am a complete loss.

[*]CCTV cameras have a 420 line resolution
[*]Adolf Hitler was born on 4/20
[*]Californian law SB 420, by the way, imposed ID Cards on those people who wanted to use marijuana for medical purposes
[*]420bc is the year that budda died

It has something to do with smoking marijuana. I have no idea on the history of it.

I've heard 420 have numerous reasons for being associated with marijuana, from it being the California police code to the fact that that 4:20 on a clock with a happy face makes it look like the person has a joint in the corner of his mouth.

I don't really care what the day's significance is, or how it came to be that stoners around the world came to celebrate it. Only that its a great day to hang out with your friends and get totally blitzed on the best weed you can find in your area to buy.

Oh and BTW you forgot the anniversary of the Columbine shooting, which also happened on 4/20

If your really interested try wiki

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4/20

Don't know why you wouldn't have looked there first, however, if you were truly interested

The real scoop is that it was supposedly coined by a group calling themselves the Waldos (IIRC) in CA in the 70s, and they determined that when one of them said it was 4:20, regardless of actual time, they would meet by some statue and smoke marijuana. It spread, and is now generally referred to as "international pot smoking time."
I've also heard it comes from there being 420 active chemicals in THC, which I believe has also been debunked.
