Origin

On October 20th, 2011 the website for the Belgian magazine Humo<2> posted a single panel comic in which a father tells his daughter that she cannot contract the AIDS virus from a mosquito bite but replies "that changes everything" when asked what would happen if the mosquito were homosexual (shown below).

Translation:

Dad: "No honey, you can"t get AIDS from a mosquite bite."Daughter: "Even if the musquito is a homosexual?"Dad: "That changes everything!"

On July 8th, 2012, Tumblr<2> user welcometothedankside posted an edited version of the comic panel, showing the father attempting to persuade his six-year-old daughter to smoke marijuana by saying "420 blaze it faggot" (shown below). Within the next seven months, the post received over 48,300 notes.

Precursor

The phrase may have been inspired by the song "Blaze it Up (420 Anthem)" by the rappers K57, Bez Da Boss and Akki Bo. On March 22nd, 2011, YouTuber Anthony Jacob uploaded a music video of the track, featuring several scenes in which marijuana appears to be consumed (shown below).

Etymology

According to the editor of the marijuana enthusiast magazine High Times, the term "420" was coined by a group of students known as the "Waldos" at the San Rafael High School in California in 1971. The term was used to refer to the time of day the group would meet to smoke marijuana.<5>
