UNBELIEVABLE: Youth openly smoke weed to mark annual tradition



When it comes to getting their way, many could do things others may consider unimaginable.

So it has happened in Canada where hundreds of young people took to smoking weed on Friday, or day 4/20, to call for the legalisation of marijuana.

Reports say that in the city of Montreal, 300-400 people gathered Friday at 4:20 pm to fire up joints, as a way of ramming their point through


420, 4:20, or 4/20 is a code term in cannabis culture that refers to the consumption of weed, especially around the time of 4:20 pm, as well as smoking cannabis in celebration on the date April 20, which is 4/20 in US form.

Similar scenes played out in Vancouver, Toronto and Ottawa outside parliament, where lawmakers are to vote this summer on legalizing pot.

It is a campaign promise of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, 46, who has acknowledged smoking weed.


The bill was originally supposed to have been ready for the national holiday of July 1. But it has been delayed by work in legislative commissions.

If it goes through, marijuana would be legalized in Canada this summer.
