"420" Cannabis Event
'420' (pronounced ‘four twenty’) is a term used mostly in North America. It refers to the consumption of cannabis (marijuana) and may be used to identify oneself with cannabis subculture. 420 observances are based on time (4:20pm) as well as date (April 20th) each year.
Vancouver Board of Education Policy:
- When April 20th falls on a school day school attendance is expected
- Attendance will be taken, and students will be marked absent as on any other day
- For many reasons, VSB does not endorse students participating in 420
