Welcome to this weeks edition of The Dab Digest by the WaxNax team! In this edition, we will dive into the history of two significant occasions that fall within the same week, 4/20 and Earth Day.
What do you know about 4/20?
April 20th, or 4/20, has become an unofficial holiday for cannabis enthusiasts across the world. Where people come together and celebrate the power of the plant, community, and culture!
According to legend, a group of high school students called the Waldos used to meet up at 4:20 pm to smoke after school. They would often use the code term “420” to refer to their smoking activities, which eventually caught on with their peers and the wider cannabis culture.
Over time, 4/20 has become a day to celebrate the plant with community, culture, and activism. With events and festivals held in cities across the world. Many consumers use this day as an opportunity to advocate for the legalization of cannabis and to educate others about its the expression of the plant.
What do you know about Earth Day?
Earth Day is an annual event held on April 22nd, which started in 1970. The first Earth Day was organized by US Senator Gaylord Nelson, who was concerned about the impact of industrialization and pollution on the environment.
The event was a massive success, with over 20 million Americans participating in rallies and events to raise awareness of environmental issues. This led to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of several key environmental laws.
Since then, Earth Day has become a global event, with people across the world coming together to celebrate and advocate for the protection of the environment. The day is now recognized in over 190 countries and is an important opportunity for individuals and organizations to promote sustainability and environmentalism.
What do both holidays have in common?
April 20th and Earth Day share a common theme of promoting natural and sustainable solutions to improve the well-being of people and the planet.
As we reflect on the history of 4/20 and Earth Day, we recognize the shared values of these two occasions. While 4/20 is a celebration of cannabis culture, Earth Day is a call to action for the protection of the environment. Yet, both days highlight the importance of promoting natural and sustainable solutions to improve the well-being of humanity and the planet. As we move forward, let us continue to advocate for the protection of our planet and to support healthy, sustainable living for all.
