420 Buttons / Weed Buttons

The weekend after this one will be very weedy for some people. And not because they are going to be weeding their garden!

420 refers – not reefers! – to the time 4:20, which is known in some circles to be a time for smoking marijuana. On the day of the year which corresponds to the time – the 20th day of April, the 4th month – people come together to celebrate.
