I've always wondered that, too. I heard that there were 420 chemicals in pot, but apparently that's not true. According to articles I read, a bunch of kids in California in the 70's coined the term when they decided to go find some unattended marijuana plants right after practice. Guess what time that was? 4:20. From then on it become the codeword for smoking.

ANSWER #12 of 14

I don't think that the traditions in my culture is the same as American culture.

ANSWER #13 of 14

It isn't tradition, it is just reality. I just looked it up, The US is 11th and and South Africa is 21st in marijuana use. Even higher than Netherlands where it is legal. So I still think you probably do know people who smoke it, but you just don't know they do. And please, I mean no disrespect. I am merely trying to make the point that marijuana is extremely common in many countries, even where it is illegal, like the US and South Africa.
