Thousands Show Up in Boulder for 4/20

BOULDER - University of Colorado officials were kinder and gentler to hundreds of marijuana activists and their supporters who gathered for a pro-pot rally Friday on campus.

No, the cops didn't hand out brownies or other munchies to stoned students this year. But, the handful of officers who stayed on perimeter of Friday's large turnout also didn't undertake a hard-core crackdown, either.

CU police Cmdr. Brad Wiesley said his officers issued about a "half-dozen" tickets to revelers for either possessing less than an ounce of marijuana or smoking pot in public.

Most of the tickets were written before the traditional 4:20 p.m. lighting up, he said. The maximum penalty for the petty offenses is a $100 fine.Rocky Mountain News
