Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes him twice. First on Twitter in 2011: "Yes it's true: I was born at precisely 4:20PM, June 12, 1958. Born In love with cannabis" [1], and second in an interview: "I was really born at 4:20 p.m. It's funny, I hadn't even known that until a couple years ago when one of my staff was reorganizing my files and happened to come across my birth certificate. Sure enough, it was 4:20 p.m." ("'Weed Wars' star on politics, activism and wellness" by Austin L. Ray, CNN, 25 January 2012 [2]).
