Most non-users are not aware of the 420 symbol. 

They might see a T-shirt or baseball cap - even a baby outfit - with a 420 printed on it and not get the meaning. 
​420, 4:20, or 4/20 is a code-term from the early seventies that came to symbolize the growing marijuana counterculture. 

The term is still recognized by most law enforcement personnel, some medical marijuana patients, those promoting legalization and a lot of baby boomers.  

4:20 either in the morning or afternoon symbolizes the perfect time to get high. 

April 29th (4/20) is now the national holiday of the committed pot smokers and legal advocates, who gather together to have fun.

There are also a lot of misconceptions about 420.
