Arrested for pot possession on 4/20?

In the state of Florida, many marijuana enthusiasts take place in an informal holiday known as 4/20. This is observed on April 20 of each year and is a way for those within the cannabis subculture to join together and partake of the drug together.

While the holiday was coined in California in 1971, it has since spread across the country, groups in every state participating. In fact, Tallahassee, Florida has since been named one of the most active spots for 420.
