No one seems to be able to agree on exactly why "420" became synonymous with smoking marijuana, but whatever, man.
If you're lucky enough to reside in Colorado or Washington, where recreational marijuana is now legal, you're sure to have a great April 20. Unfortunately, HuffPost Weird News is based in New York. But that doesn't mean we can't give our readers a contact high -- from our favorite weed stories!
HUFFPOST WEIRD'S OFFICIAL GUIDE TO 4/20:
1. Prepare beforehand. You don't want to run out of snacks, panic and end up stealing $65,000 worth of chicken wings.
2. Stay away from squirrels.
3. Don't hang out with mice, either. They'll smoke all your weed and then bounce.
4. Don't drive.
5. Be extra nice to your local marijuana distributor. Especially if he's as generous and goodhearted as this guy.
