    This is an idiom I have not seen before.
    I am currently looking at some ads for housing and this appears quite often. Would anyone pls. explain what it means? Thank you.

    LOL ... 420-friendly would imply someone who has no trouble with you smoking marijuana.

    Ahoj, :)

    I had the same problem one year ago when I was looking for an apartment. ;) This article was quite enlightening.

    How would you actually pronounce it?

    four two o friendly? four hundred and twenty friendly?
    maybe either in another way?

    It's an AE thing and it would be pronounced, four-twenty, as it signifies the date, April 20th. This is a date unofficially recognised as "National Smokers' Day".
