    420 "TIME"
    Smokers explained that 420 is “a time that is in-between day and night, a break… a good time to relax and chill.” Others said: “If my friends and I are ever up at 4:20 AM, we always celebrate by smoking a bowl or joint. It is simply a justified reason to smoke.”

    For novices, 420 motivated smoking behavior by organizing time. The newly inducted learned that 420 meant “a” or “the” “time to smoke.” For example, smokers explained how they learned that 4:20 in the afternoon was “prime time” for smokers, the “pot-smoker’s happy hour,” the “best time to smoke,” or the “international smoke time.” One expressed the general sentiment of the novice: “You have to smoke at 4:20 if you have herb.” Smokers explained how they set their alarm clocks, or how clocks in general served as reminders to smoke at 4:20. Nearly all smokers agreed that for the novice, 420 became an excuse or a reason to smoke, and frequently involved excessive smoking.

    This pattern is sociologically significant, because a crucial ingredient in the recipe for identity achievement is immersion into identity-shaping activities. In other words, smoking lots of weed in the beginning normalizes getting high and increases the chances of defining oneself as a smoker of weed. The sociologist would also take important note of the fact that the organization of time is one of the most basic frameworks that supports and legitimates a “reality.” Stated otherwise, 4:20 time gives legitimacy or a sense of truthfulness to pot-smoker reality.

    Putting such sociological value aside, more seasoned smokers complained and resisted. They criticized that such time structuring created a “ritualistic use of 420” or that it turned “marijuana-smoking into a joke.” One smoker, who described himself as “patriotic to the weed,” claimed that 420 should not be guided by time, but rather a more spontaneous “pledge and a tribute.”

    Whether a novice or seasoned user, what nearly everyone agreed upon is that 4:20 (PM or AM) meant a source of unity or oneness in the pot-smoker community. It was variously described as a “time to unite with all smokers,” a “smoker’s club,” and a way that “brings users together for smoking, community, and solidarity.” Smokers repeatedly claimed that 420 created a “common bond” among “friends” and “fellow smokers.” They know that when they light up at 4:20, thousands, if not millions, of others are doing the same for the same reason.
