I forgot to post about 4:20 yesterday, and no it's not because I was participating in 4:20.

For those not in the know 4:20 is stoner time. Someone told me yesterday that 4/20 is Bob Marley's birthday. I am not sure if that is related to the time being 4:20.

Let's Wikipedia, shall we?
The term was coined from a group of teenagers at San Rafael High School in San Rafael, California, United States in 1971.[2][3] The teens would meet after school at 4:20 p.m. to smoke marijuana outside the school.[4]

According to an April 2009 article on the The Huffington Post, the group called itself the Waldos because its members hung out by a wall after school. Writer Ryan Grim, citing interviews with anonymous Waldos, claims that the group met by the statue at 4:20 p.m. to begin a search for a crop of abandoned cannabis growing near Point Reyes that they had heard about. They never found the stash, Grim writes, but smoked plenty of marijuana while looking for it.

I just looked up Bob Marley's birthday and it is not 4/20. One of his sons, Stephen "Raggamuffin" Marley was born on 4/20. I'm thinking stoners aren't celebrating Raggamuffin. Just a hunch.

Wonder if sales of the KFC Double Down went up yesterday.
