    Actually the term "420" has been around for way longer then that, dating back throughout marijuana's history. There are several different theories as to where it came from, but no actual proof as to who actually coined the term first. "Cannabis - A History" is a great book to check out to learn more about it and our wonderful plant. Other neat facts about 420 is that April 20th is Adolf Hitler's birthday, and 420 degrees is the temperature at which THC burns!
