There are many rumors about where the term "420" ((pronounced four-twenty) originated and how it became the code word for cannabis users, but the most widely excepted version revolves around a group of young pot-heads in the early 1970s called the Waldos (click here for the full story).

What does this have to do with Wyoming? The date itself (April 20th), not much, but a marijuana legalization group that uses the name 420 Wyoming, is urging the people to sign a petition to make medicinal pot usage legal throughout the state. If they get the required amount signatures, the proposal will be up for voting this November.
