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?

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.

So, quickly—take note of all of the various myths you’ve heard about this magical day, and answer the question yourself: how do you think 420 began? (No Googling!)
