Many of you may be asking, why is 4/20 the day everyone does weed? The history of this holiday is not widely known. But I did some research and I am here today to fill you guys in. It all began on April 20, 1969. The day the first marijuana plant was discovered. Spanish explorer and discoverer of America, Ponce de Leon, was walking his dog, Disco, through a forest near his home off the coast of southern California in the United States (the country between Canada and Mexico). PDL had just returned from a long week of exploring and was enjoying the relaxation. But, you know what they say “an explorer never stops exploring!” so of course his eyes are always peeled for new discoveries! Disco, a Corgi, was sniffing in some bushes near a large Apple tree when his little tail began wagging out of control. Ponce knew that wag. That meant his little guy found something neat. Leon dipped down low and sniffed the plant that Disco was sniffing. They were both just sniffing the plant, it was kind of weird actually. P had never seen a plant like it. He just had to figure out what it was. So he plucked the bizarre shrub from the earth and carried it back to his laboratory. He picked and prodded at what today avid pot-doers call “nugs” and was entranced. He loved the smell. He dumped out his potpuri bowl and filled it with all of the “nugs” from the plant. But the smell was still not strong enough for him. He wanted that smell to be inside of him. So he took a little bit out and put it in his tobacco bong and lit it. He smoked it and it felt really good! He told all his buddies and eventually it really became quite popular beyond his friend group. And to this day, people do pot regularly. All thanks to Ponce de Leon and little Disco’s discovery on April 20, 1969.
