It’s April 20th. 4-20 is a de facto holiday in weed culture, with murky origins and an interesting future as a day of activism and policy conversation.

Jody, Niki, and Kellie are joined by Ellen Scanlon, host of “How To Do The Pot,” to discuss the many competing theories about where 420 came from as a touchstone. Plus they discuss how the decriminalization and legalization of marijuana may change the meaning of the day.
