I thought 420 was because when the miners used to have a break in the morning and afternoon, the afternoon one was at 420 and they smoked a cigarette, although not just any cigarette ;) ...but I now see apparently the origins are not confirmable... Never mind :D

Why would people steal mile 420?

Sign theft is a serious problem, just ask the residents of Fucking, Austria.

I dunno, if I had to choose a sign to steal, I'd want to go for the one with the two decimal places.

I would love to hear the conversation the state government had before choosing to do this. "Okay gentlemen, so we just legalized marijuana. What do we think the repercussions of this will be?" "Well sir, it seems a road sign has already been stolen." "Which one?" "Make a wild guess."

I wouldn't steal it. I'd just set it on fire.

Everyone wondering, 420 is a number people now associate with Marijuana, It is commonly used in the modern day to mock people who never shut up about smoking it. originally it was used by a group of people who used to meet up at 20 minutes past 4 to smoke pot. This has led people to say "420 blaze it" and other such things.Some of this could be absolute bollocks but this is what I understand about the topic. Have a nice day

The truth is nobody is actually sure of the true origin. There are only theories

Scholars maintain that the meaning has been lost for centuries.

I thought it was because of Prop 420 in California? Where the fuck did you pull that other thing for?
alex2200 0 karmaJanuary 2014
What is Prop 420?
Ekaw105 +2 karmaJanuary 2014
(According to Wiki) Proposition (prop) 420 was a bill signed into law in 2003 in California regarding use of medical marijuana.

Thank you so much. I went on vacation and when I got back everybody was saying it and I was so confused, but now I understand.

Somewhere through the years I was told it had to do with police codes regarding marijuana. I suppose that would probably be region specific as I am not sure but do not think police codes are universal between states.

Wait is this serious? There's seriously an issue with potheads stealing a mile marker? I can imagine the fellows at the state capital just thinking to themselves "maybe we made a mistake....."

I-69 runs right up the middle of my state (Michigan). Highway sign theft is a pretty serious issue in some places...

Why is 420 significant?
everydaywarrior 0 karmaJanuary 2014
I would steal it anyway, just to be a dick.

Chill out on the all caps there champ. Not every country or person knows about 420. I still don't get the "SWEET, SWEET DICKS IN MY MOUTH" though. Please elaborate.

With this comment showing up in the latest comment box on this post I just had to click through to investigate. What situation justifies intensified mouth dicking?

So, care to elaborate (after you pulled those dicks out of your mouth)?

420 is slang for marijuana.
jamfam75 0 karmaJanuary 2014
Maybe slang was the wrong term to use. 420 is used by some as a reference in one way or another to marijuana.
CoGLucifer 0 karmaJanuary 2014
No it's not, it's just a sort of symbol/logo for stoners. You're supposed to smoke at 4:20, 4/20 is weed day. I don't really know where it started, but it's sure as hell not slang for marijuana and I can't believe people are upvoting that idea as if it's right
kiwilemon 0 karmaJanuary 2014
Maybe not where you live? Slang varies by area, you know, and I've been in places where people ask me if I want some 420. Also, you're being a dick about someone using a simple explanation rather than going into a detailed one for someone who obviously has no use for the term. Cool guy right here.

Actually it's from Prop 420, I believe. The medical marijuana legislation.
chinchillapants 0 karmaJanuary 2014
Double checked, 40 years. Honestly just go to Wikipedia and type in 420. I would link it but I'm on mobile and it's not easy.
chinchillapants 0 karmaJanuary 2014
No. Just no. That prop was named for the use of 420 in weed culture, 420 has probably been used for 20 years or more

You're so wrong, it hurts.It's not slang for marijuana."Dude, let's go smoke some 420"
