Fire It Up! Happy 420 Everybody

Happy 420 to all of our pot smoking friends out there across the world!

How it started isn't clearly known...more urban legend than fact. Is 420 the police code for pot? Or is it the time of day when kids released from school party the most?

Whatever the reason, 420 is the slang code name for marijuana and it seems it always has been. Well, at least since 1971!

Next time you are watching a movie or TV, note the time on the clock on the wall. It may be set to 4:20. This will be a subtle "Hey, how you doin'?" from the director, the set designer or the key grip to all the stoners out there.

Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Pulp Fiction and one of the best movies ever, A Few Good Men, all have 420 references.

So, today's the day to channel your inner Cheech and Chong and Fire It Up!

Here is a list of Stoner movies to go and rent today:

Pineapple Express
The Big Lebowski - You have to go rent "the Dude, man.."
Half Baked
Dazed and Confused
How High
Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle
Up in Smoke
Cheech and Chongs Still Smokin
Tenacious D - The Pick of Destiny
