But 4:20 celebrations and 4/20 rallies have been going on much longer!

Folklore of 420 starts way back in 1971 when students at a California High School would meet up at 4:20 at a certain location to smoke marijuana together.

So 4:20 actually started as a time and can be celebrated twice a day.

People can celebrate 4:20 quite often if this meme is true

Eventually 4/20 became an entire day-long celebration.

Rallies to celebrate 4/20 started to pop up and were hosted by activists who wanted to change antiquated marijuana laws.

Attendees can hold a yard sign - "Vote Marijuana" or "Cannabis is Safer" - for oncoming rush-hour traffic to see, plus take one home for free to display in their windows!

LMN also wants the State of Nebraska and its farmers to increase hemp production and manufacturing. Nebraska has hardly any manufacturers that make hemp products to sell to consumers.

In addition to the Federal Farm Act, Nebraska passed laws legalizing the production and manufacturing of goods with hemp. It's time our state ramps up production and manufacturing of this staple crop.

Hemp is an environmentally friendly crop that needs no pesticides or chemicals to grow well. Hemp actually extracts dangerous toxins from the soils!

Hemp cover is dense and conserves water by creating its own mini ecosystem that is similar to a rainforest. The canopy keeps moisture in the soil instead of allowing evaporation to occur.

Hempcrete is one of many eco-friendly products made from hemp.

Hemp fiber can be used to create many useful products from paper to biodegradable plastic bottles.

Hemp can make our lives better while being sustainable and friendly to our Earth.
