The UNofficial holiday for Stateline stoners (which may not be an actual group, but you're welcome for the name) now has UNofficial food.

Why 4/20 Such a Big Deal

There are a few theories as to when and where the '420' became a thing. I read an article at that credits the origin of 420 to a group of California teenagers in the 70s.

"A group of Californian teenagers ritualistically smoked marijuana every day at 4:20 pm. The ritual spread, and soon 420 became code for smoking marijuana. Eventually, 420 was converted into 4/20 for calendar purposes, and the day of celebration was born." (Steven Hager, a former editor of the marijuana-focused news outlet High Times)

If you're just here for the food, celebrate with Wingstop at 3636 E. State Street in Rockford.

Celebrate 4/20 Day with a New 'weed-inspired' Wingstop Flavor

The new flavor from the popular chicken wing joint, Wingstop, is made with a blend of hemp seeds, terpenes [ter-PEENZ], strawberry, and cayenne pepper.

What's really getting all the talk is that the flavor will give your insides that special tingle.

The tingling sensation would be produced in your mouth, not your noggin. These wings won't be bending your brain in any crazy ways. I suspect they will have a magical effect on your hunger.

Give me more of that, please.

Get on this one ASAP, the flavor is only available through Friday 4/22.
