The famous phrase "it's five o'clock somewhere" means that even though it may not be five o'clock in your local time zone, odds are it must be in another part of the world. The end of the work day for a traditional "nine-to-five" worker is 5 p.m. and its typical to see the start of 'Happy-Hour' at most restaurants and bars around this time.

People generally use this phrase to justify drinking at any time of day, given that somewhere in the world it's 5:00 p.m. In countercultures throughout the world, 4:20 p.m. is the socially accepted time where people gather for cannabis-oriented celebrations.

In addition to the occurrence of 4:20p.m. each day, April 20 is observed around the world each year as a time to gather together and celebrate cannabis. The day has become a popular time to advocate for liberalization and legalization through concerts, festivals and protest in civil disobedience.

This website makes it easy to know when its 4:20 by tracking over 30 time zones around the world in real-time. We also have a live countdown that monitors the days leading up to April 20 in your local timezone.

While its true that most time zones around the world differ from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) by a number of full hours, there are also several time zones with both 30-minute and 45-minute hourly offsets. Furthermore, regions that use Daylight Saving Time (DST) change time zones during the DST period and the areas that don't use DST remain on their standard time all year, this results in various 4:20's throughout the day depending on the time of the year. Plus, it was fun to make!

According to Stoner legend, the roots of the term "four-twenty" trace back to Marin County, California in the early 1970's. Five high school students from San Rafael High School would regularly meet after class at 4:20 p.m. to do what stoners do.

They chose that specific time and a specific place, near a statue of chemist Louis Paseur, to hang out and eventually they started using the phrase "Louis 4:20" around each other as code for a cannabis meetup. Details are sketchy, but as the story goes, one of the students (Dave Reddix) eventually went on to become a roadie for the Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh, where the phrase became popularized among followers of the band and started to spread.

In the days since, the time 4:20pm, number 420, and the calendar date April 20 (4/20) have become internationally recognized as counterculture symbols among smokers and non-smokers alike. As cannabis remains illegal in many countries, celebrations are held around the world on April 20 advocating for its decriminalization and legalization.
