High holiday: 4/20 traces roots to these high school stoners

They keep those records in a rented safe deposit box in a San Francisco bank where they also store other documentation, including postmarked letters they exchanged in the mid-1970s discussing 420. The San Francisco bank’s address, as it happens, is 420 Montgomery Street.

    High holiday: 4/20 traces roots to these high school stoners
    Friday is April 20, or 4/20. That's the numerical code for marijuana's high holiday, a celebration and homage to pot's enduring and universal slang for smoking. Festivities are planned worldwide, culminating with a synchronized smoke at 4:20 p.m. local time.

"What wakes you up in the morning? What keeps you up at night? What is your dream?"

A few weeks later, Argelis walked into one of two brand-new schools sharing a shuttered elementary building at 7th and Norris streets.

This article has 1 other Philadelphia location (Show)

Argelis is from the Kensington neighborhood of North Philadelphia, which she fondly refers to as “K&A” for the intersection of Kensington and Allegheny, a neighborhood that recently made headlines as the economically depressed center of Philadelphia’s opioid crisis.

    "What wakes you up in the morning? What keeps you up at night? What is your dream?"
    Seated at a cafe in Fishtown, Argelis Minaya-Bravo was overwhelmed by the prospect of starting her senior year. "I'm sorry, I just had a reflection sort-of moment there," she said. But unlike many students her age, it isn't so much the unknown future that makes her pause, it's the realization of how far she has come.
