Hey Pete,

While I was over at checking out the 420 page, I realized there wasn't any verifiable historical reference to 420 and it's possible meaning. I have been studying works by Shulgin, Hofmann, Huxley, Wasson, Castaneda and others for some time and I came across and interesting tidbit in Albert Hofmann's "LSD - My Problem Child". It appears that Hofmann's first deliberate bio-assay of LSD-25 was on April 19th, 1943 at 4:20PM.

Just an interesting note to add to the 420 Page.

Dear Peter
Here is some AWESOME 420 lore, AND it can be verified by none other then Seattle Hempfest director Vivian McPeak.Vivian is the MC of Seattle Hempfest and one of the leading illuminati of the cannabis movement. Vivian came from Seattle last April ( his flight was on 4/20..really.) to vissit me in Burbank. The day after he arrived ( 4/21/2000 ) we drove to visit Jack Herer ( The grand Daddy of Hemp Awareness) at his home in Van Nuys Ca. in the San Fernando Valley of L.A.

On the way to Jack's place we were behind the 420 transit bus and followed the 420 to Jacks house at guessed it 4:20. One the way there we passed the Four and Twenty Resturaunt. Since this was a summit meeting of two of hemps greater champions, I would say the constant 420s to be a COSMIC sign of good omen for 420ers everywhere.

Peace nLove to All.

I posted realplayer video of Seattle Hempfest 1999 and 2000 at my domain at http://www.zreal I thought you might consider mentioning this page on your site. The .swf GUI control panel with the peace sign is less then 70 kb and I will encourage people to put it on thier websites so that Seattle Hempfest and hemp awareness in general gets more exposure then can be at alone. Contained in that small 70kb file will be links to several hours of streaming hempfest video, a photo album and Hemp facts.If we get this media bar in widespread use , with the idea being to increase Hemp awareness and the publics exposure to Seattle Hempfest. If you want, I can send the media control console to you for use on your site. So I definately want to form alliances and work more closely with everybody so lets stay in touch.

First I'd like to thank you for what you've done with Sugarmegs... it has really made my life a happier place. I've been visiting the site for over a year now and I have to say it is awesome. it really helps bring people together musically.

Second, heres a neat clip from a USA today article on Phish that is 420 related, although USA today convieniently didn't mention it ;)

Success has come without mainstream radio airplay or huge album sales. Last year, the band - which in addition to Anastasio, 35, includes drummer Jon Fishman, 35, bassist Mike Gordon, 34, and keyboardist Page McConnell, 36 - sold a modest 420,000 albums.

Hey dude, nice site. My story goes like this...

My car was in the shop for the day, so I had rented another from Enterprise Rental to get to work and back. Well, at the end of the day, I returned the vehicle and asked for a lift to the repair shop. No problem. The driver (whom I had chatted with earlier when he picked me up from the repair shop that morning) was a bit more mellow than before, which made me wonder, firstly. Then we got to talking again. It was the end of the day, so I was worn out and my vocabulary had slipped down to "stoner" mode.

I guess the driver took this as some sort of cue because he asked me straight out, "Do you burn?". I looked at him and said, "Aw shit...hell yeah, dood!" At that moment I happended to glance at the clock on the radio which, honestly, read 4:20.

I even got a hook-up out of it! I should get my car repaired more often!

Hi Peter,
Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to complete the Boston Marathon. The officials chased her and tried to tear her number off her chest because they did not want a woman to run. She got admitted accidentally to this all male competition. She finshed in 4 hours 20 minutes:) She went on to win the NYC marathon later in life. What an inspiration.

While studying for a test in a class titled Wellness, I got bored. My mind began to wander and soon I found myself flipping through the book for the class in search for something more interesting to occupy my mind. Like always, I decided to flip to the page 420 to see what was being duscussed on the page. Upon reacing the page 420, my mouth dropped and my eyes nearly bugged out of my head. The heading at the top of the page told the whole story: GATEWAY DRUGS. Listed directly under the heading was a smaller heading: MARIJUANA. I thought I was having an acid flash back so I immediately hollered for my roommate to come verify that I was actually seeing what I was seeing. COINCIDENCE??? I THINK NOT!!

Well, my clock says 4:20 so I am going to perform my daily habit now.

okay... my first 420 story happened one night a couple weeks ago. I was really stoned, and therefore quite hungry. I went into a Citgo to get some gatorade, a bag of cookies, and a lighter... the total came to $5.80, and without thinking i gave the guy a ten and the register lit up saying that my change was $4.20... needless to say i almost shit my pants trying not to bust out laughing.

the second story isn't really a story, just the odd coincidence that i visited middlebury college on 4/20 last year, and on my application i was asked if i had visited the campus, and then asked the date of my visit... so now i've got 4/20 on my college application

and, just as an end note, remember the childrens rhyme "sing a song of sixpence"? the words go as follows: sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of rye/ FOUR and TWENTY blackbirds BAKED in a pie

One day, actually, it was april 20th, I was sitting around with my friend all ripped. And I got a brilliant story in my head, I made up a 420 myth of my own. Okay, here it goes: These four people lived in the middle of the woods, in a cottage surrounded by huge stalks of weed and apple trees. All they did was pick the pot, and smoke it. They had no concept of the real world, they all just smoked and ate apples all the time. Then, they thought they should cut back, so on the four clocks that they had in their house, they said they'd only smoke at a certain time. Which happened to be 4:20. Then, one by one, all the clocks eventually stopped....ON 420. So, they were all constantly smoking, because "It was 4:20" Please, write back if ya want to.

Alright, so this one is a little depressing, but still an interesting date. On April 20th of this year I (of course) called in sick to work to hang out all day. Unfortunately I had only recently moved here to Denver and didn't know many people-the friends I came with all wussed out and didn't call into work, so I was sitting on the couch taking bong hit after bong hit, listening to the Dead and having myself a good old time. Eventually I decided to cut on the TV and the first thing that popped up on every channel was the Columbine shooting here in Denver. Damn, talk about a buzz kill. So needless to say that was not one of the best 420's I have had...why did I write this, it's depressing?! Sorry dude-site looks good. Jack

Hey Peter, I've had a lot of 4:20s but this is the most recent...yesterday, my boyfriend and I were sitting in my apt watching tv and getting happy when the phone rings. we let the machine pick up, its his dad telling him he got a certified letter from a company he applied for a job with. the message ends with "it's 4:20". we had a feeling what it was and raced to his house to get it. sure enough, the letter said the company would not consider him for the job b/c his drug test showed alcohol and one or more illegal substances. oh well.

There is not much of a story associated with this pic other than the fact that I found out that it is possible to spark a bowl, drive a manual transmission and take a picture on the fly.

U.S. Stocks End Mixed; Nasdaq Inches To New High
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Stocks ended mixed Monday as cautious investors scooted to the sidelines ahead of the Federal Reserve's first strategy meeting of 1999, which starts Tuesday.
Based on early, unofficial data, the Dow Jones industrial average was down 13.13 points, or 0.1 percent, at 9,345.70.

On one lovely afternoon this past summer, I had been chillin at the pad for about three hours or so. Me and the gang had been listening to some Jazz and smoking some of the kindest I have ever seen in these parts. Around 4 in the afternoon, munchies called and we all piled into the car to go to the local Jimmy John's sub shop. At precisely 4:20pm I puchased a Italian Night sub and the total came to $4.20. Being rather baked, I giggled and then noticed that the pimply faced kid behind the counter was also smiling. At that moment, my buddy Dank turned to me and said "Dude, listen..." to my surprise, they were playing "Rift" over the loud speakers in my favorite sandwich shop.

In May '97 I took my first roadtrip, to Rocky Mountain National Park in CO., using I-70 , originating in KY. Heading back east, while driving across Kansas I anticipated the 420 mile marker, as I hadn't seen anything else but wheat for the past 5 hours and was eager to! I was in the floorboard rolling! Somebody snagged it. This past May (98) I was off on my now annual sebatical, headed to the Tetons in Wyoming...heading back on I-70 I was even more curious to see what the fate of the empty 420 was. It was like seeing an old friend and I was elated to come up on it It was Gone, still :( I smiled and thought 420 things and went on down the road feelin' bad (One Word: Greyhound). I focused on what's next? Well, 421! 421 had a Phat ass Phish sticker on...kinda acknowledging that there was something not quite right, but sacred, about this special spot. mile 422...mile 423 my heart dropped and then raced as I was flooded with joy. A nice full color Steal Your Face sticker on 423 for Jerry G of course. I thought how nice it was that we can all have this sort of secret society witha secret handshake (420). How we can all celebrate what is so sacred to us amongst ourselves in a symbolic manner, and not really have to get alot of flack for it...because, well, non-partakers aren't really consciously aware of it. And, by it being symbolic and is a much clearer recognition to 'US' , not cluttered by our language- which is often too vague to truly describe ideas in the way that we 'understand' them .

Well, this isn't really much of a story, but I gotta share it since it happened just the other night. I was driving myself and a couple of friends to town to grab some steaks to cook up while we enjoyed our night of drinking Killians Irish Red and puffing our dankest nugs that we had harvested a few days before.

On the way back, Chris says "hey I know this phat sign in this field we gotta check out." I was up for a little adventure, so we went and checked it out. He told me to slow down and turn off my lights next to this corn field, so I complied. He jumped out of the car and returned less than a minute later carrying this sign.

When we got back to the house he showed it to was one of those corn-marker things telling what chemical was being used on what row (I think). The top had a huge M and below that said Mycogen. The bottom said 2420 in big white numbers. So, being the creative group we are, we proceeded to cover over the "ycogen" with "akisupa" and covered the first 2 with an arrow pointing to the right....I just hope the policeman doesn't come to my house! Keep the site phat...peace.

ok, this has a dead reference...bty i dont want to start any fights! 420 started in MARIN county ( thats in N CA). It was a bunch of friends meeting to get high at this killer spot in the mountains. Now...some of you know Jerry grew up in this area, as did many of the wonderful people that were close to the DEAD, and whom traveled the world with this band. They happened to take thier little "inside" joke ( for lack of a better term) with them. Now as this spread through the fans, it has grown into a cult following, with meanings tailored to the place you happen to be in. It is always always a reference to marijuana, and though i have heard MANY times that it is a police code for narcotics...i have yet to find any validation to this claim. If you dont believe me, or just feel you need to see it for out a bottle from when jerry and the boys released thier own wine in limited numers called Ye Old 420 Blend or something like that...the history of 420 is printed on the side of the label for all to read. I have read the bottle, and been to THE SPOT in marin, and I share what is rattleing around in my head with all of you....for what its worth. I hope this helps, and BTW ...the seapods came to CA for the 1st time tonight...i was there and they rocked Ventura Theatre!
