Today Is 4/20 – And Weed-Loving Celebrities Are Celebrating On Twitter
Today is April 20, but to many it is the unofficial weed-themed holiday “420”.
The celebratory day of marijuana all started when California high schools would use the code “420” to plan to meet up at 4:20 pm to smoke with friends, because it was the perfect window of opportunity where they were out of school but their parents weren’t home from work. Over the years, that time translated over to April 20, and people have been embracing the cannabis-filled day ever since.
Many celebrities have become very open about their approval of the drug and their smoking habits, they even shared celebratory tweets with fans.
Snoop Dogg, rapper and iconic weed enthusiast, tweeted the night before reminding fans to leave out some milk and cookies, à la Santa Claus.
Don’t forget to leave milk and cookies out 4 me tonite! #420eve

THREAD: It’s official. Today, I am formally announcing my plan to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level. It’s time we allow states, once and for all, to have the power to decide what works best for them.
