Was it started because it falls on a particular dictator's birthday? Does it originate from a song released in the 1960s? Did Snoop start it?

Based on the response from folks we spoke to here in Los Angeles, there’s still a lot to clarify about the origins of our favorite unofficial 420 high holiday.

MERRY JANE News asked Angelenos to answer how they imagined 420 came to be. One thing was abundantly clear: many of our fellow tokers definitely never took the time to research how it all started.

Was it started because it falls on a particular dictator's birthday? Does it originate from a song released in the 1960s? Did Snoop start it?

 Watch the video above, and find out if your guess is any better than theirs.
