Recommendation: The history of 420

KUSA - May we make a recommendation? This is when we point you the direction of journalism we had nothing to do with, yet is well worth a look.

Did you know that the 420 mile marker had to be removed because people kept stealing it? Now it says 419.99.

The podcast Criminal looked into all of this, speaking with Colorado’s Department of Transportation. The podcast also examined how the number 420 came to be associated with marijuana.

It’s about 15 minutes long and you can give it a listen here.
