Most people think 420 was named after a police code, but that just isn’t true.
“We are going to meet at 4:20 on 4/20 for 420-ing in Marin County at the Bolinas Ridge sunset spot on Mt. Tamalpais,” reads the message, which Bloom dug up and forwarded to the Huffington Post. Bloom, then a reporter for High Times magazine and now the publisher of CelebStoner.com and co-author of Pot Culture, had never heard of “420-ing” before.
The flyer came complete with a 420 back story: “420 started somewhere in San Rafael, California in the late ‘70s. It started as the police code for Marijuana Smoking in Progress. After local heads heard of the police call, they started using the expression 420 when referring to herb – Let’s Go 420, dude!”
Bloom reported his find in the May 1991 issue of High Times, which the magazine found in its archives and provided to the Huffington Post. The story, though, was only partially right.”

When the San Diego Tribune wrote an article on business insurance and cannabis, they turned to Crimson Insurance to help them understand the issues. I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my thoughts and excited that our reputation in the cannabis insurance field continues to grow.
Outdoor cannabis growers face the same insurance issues as other farmers, including the risks from pollution liability, and need adequate protection.
Consider the many factors that can contribute to a pollution liability issues:
- Pesticide and fungicide contaminated water runoff
- Fuel and chemical spills
- Bodily injury and property damage resulting from pollution incidents
- Waste water effluents and storm water
However, for the cannabis grower, finding pollution insurance which allows you to responsibly clean up the damage and receive reimbursement for destroyed property to get your operation back up and running has been far from easy.
Crimson Insurance aims to change that and we are excited to announce we are taking pollution insurance applications for outdoor cannabis growers in the state of California!
