To the average non-pot smoking person, April 20 is just another normal day. However, to those who do smoke marijuana, 4/20 is an international holiday.
No one knows for sure exactly how the association with that number started — probably because they were all too high to remember — but it’s become a sort of code for smoking marijuana.
Many celebrities have admitted to being the occasional recreational smoker, medical marijuana cardholder, or even weed connoisseur. It’s no surprise then that some would publicly celebrate their love for Mary Jane on 4/20.
Late night talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel, once gave a Rolling Stone interview while high. He also has a regular segment called “Pot Quiz” on his show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he asks people coming out of marijuana dispensaries about current events. This 4/20, Jimmy played a game called “Who’s High on Hollywood Blvd” and wished his viewers a Happy 420 from his Twitter page.
