    Idaho replaces mile marker 420 with 419.9 to thwart stoners

    ’t find it in Idaho.

    Idaho transportation officials say the mile marker has been replaced with 419.9 signs to curb thieves eager to own a number associated with marijuana enthusiasts.

    Turns out, Idaho isn’t alone in this problem. States like Washington and Colorado have also replaced 420 signs with 419.9 after consistently having to replace them after thefts by supposed sticky-fingered stoners.

    Adam Rush of the Idaho Transportation Department says officials have replaced the old sign along US Highway 95 with “MILE 419.9,” just south of Coeur d’Alene.

    Rush added that this is the only 420 sign the department has replaced in Idaho, a state known for its strict anti-marijuana laws despite being nearly surrounded by states with relaxed pot regulations.

    Most highways in the country don’t cover more than 400 miles. For example, Oregon has been spared the spike in sign thefts due to having no highways long enough to reach past a 400 milepost, even though it recently legalized marijuana.

    “Having a sign removed from a highway is pretty rare,” Rush said. “In Idaho, people will shoot at them or write on them before stealing them completely. We spend more time mending signs than replacing them.”

    Rush said that the department didn’t want to leave the milepost empty because the signs can be valuable for drivers tracking their journey.

    The number “420” has long been associated with marijuana, though its origins as a shorthand for pot are murky.

    Washington has two highways long enough to have 420 mileposts that have both been plagued by thieves snatching the signs over the years, said state spokeswoman Barbara LaBoe. That all stopped three years ago — the same time voters legalized pot — when officials replaced one of the signs with 419.9 along Highway 20 near the Idaho border.

    The other sign on US Highway 12 remains missing, with no immediate plans to replace it, LaBoe said.

    Sometimes a 420 milepost doesn’t need to be stolen to make the news. In Montana, the state’s largest pot busts occurred while pulling over a driver at milepost 420 along Interstate 90. Law enforcement officials found 115 pounds of marijuana hidden in the car.

    IDK, I would never steal a Mile 420 sign, but I think a Mile 419.9 sign is absolutely stealable.

    They should just put a free doritos dispensers there and distract them.

    This is my favorite sign. I went to college in WI and it seemed every student from that state had one of these in their room.

    I just saw this on the news and laughed! I'd want that 420 sign. But I'm a huge stoner. I'd like a Humboldt sign too.

    That looks shitty. They should have either omitted the decimal and let the bolt serve as a decimal.. OR moved that last 9 to center, allowing it to cover the bolt. Confusing.
