Thousands To Begin 4/20 Pot Celebrations In Colorado

Thousands of tourists and marijuana activists are getting an early start celebrating the unofficial stoner holiday of 4/20.

COLORADO:  Thousands of tourists and marijuana activists are getting an early start celebrating the unofficial stoner holiday of 4/20.

Concerts, rallies and festivals are planned through the weekend. Among the biggest is a public festival and concert in downtown Denver’s Civic Center Park. And just north of downtown this weekend is the High Times U.S. Cannabis Cup, a celebration of the drug.

Police are reminding celebrators that Colorado doesn’t allow public consumption of the drug. But the law is widely flouted, especially around the 4/20 celebrations.

The celebrations continue Sunday and Monday. The origins of the number 420 as a code for marijuana are murky. But fans of the drug have long marked April 20 as a day to enjoy pot and call for increased legal access to the drug.
