You might have noticed that in most American and English hotels, there is no room no420. But why are hotels avoiding this room number?
The newspaper source, The Daily Mail, has solved this mystery.
Every year, cannabis consumers celebrate Weed day. This is an international holiday that is organized on 4th April to legalize cannabis. On 4th April at exactly 4:20pm, participants send the same message to the government. In North America, 4:20pm, or four twenty, is an expression that refers to the ideal time to smoke cannabis. So, to stay true to this tradition, room 420 is very often requested by smokers. Since then, more and more hotels have been getting rid of number 420 so as not to bother their other clients.
