On 4/20, perhaps you’ll partake in what will soon be legally available for purchase in New Jersey. If so, perhaps you’ll have some 4/20 munchies. We’ll get to some munchies deals in just a second.
But first, why 4/20? How did those numbers become associated with marijuana to begin with? Many theories have been floated. Some believe 420 is a police code for a marijuana offense in progress. Others have claimed it stems from Bob Dylan’s "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" for the fact that 35 times 12 equals 420.
The best, most universally accepted narrative is that five Marin County, California high school students would meet at 4:20pm after school and spark one up. They are said to be the first to use 420 as a marijuana code because of their daily meeting time. One of them, Dave Reddix, got work as a roadie and the Grateful Dead helped the term take off.
Now then, should you have some 4/20 munchies, here are some deals.
