We asked our parents what 4/20 means

There was a lot of confusion

4/20 is a special day for many people. While its origins may be hotly contested and not known for sure, the one thing people do know is how to celebrate it.

Events held at colleges across North America betray the love and devotion many students have for this herb. But what of the parents of these kids? How much do they know of their precious kid’s exploits?

We got our writers to text their parents asking the very simple question: “What is 4/20?”

This is what we got back.
