I first heard the subject term two days ago on public radio.  It refers
to the cannabis industry recognizing/pushing a bump in sales on cannabis
products on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, analagous to Black Friday
and Cyber Monday.  The earliest I find it is Time Magazine, December 29,


"What’s more, on the day before Thanksgiving, weed orders spiked by 71%
over the yearly average for a Wednesday, causing marijuana businesses to
call the day Green Wednesday."

(Jan 1, 2014, which was a Wednesday and was the first day of legal
marijuana sales in Colorado, was called "Green Wednesday" by many in
recognition of that.)
