University of Colorado’s annual 4/20 Smoke Out may go up in a cloud of something resembling smoked-fish and marijuana or fish-smelling smoke, if it goes up at all. That is to say that the traditional on campus pot party/smoke-out may be extinguished by campus-officials applying fish-fertilizer on the school’s “Quad” in an attempt to quell the gathering. Last years’ smoke-out attracted around 10,000 according to CBS Denver.

The CU campus will be closed to all, except card-carrying students and faculty. Those who are out of the loop will be subject to arrest and a $750.00 fine. “Norlin Quad lawn areas will be closed to all people.” “Anyone, regardless of campus affiliation, who enters these areas will face a ticket for trespassing.”

Half of this town is run by alumni who champion the football program and beer. And they are a powerful force with whom to reckon.

A handful of people have been arrested as police in riot gear moved into the Occupy Denver camp in front of the Colorado Capitol early this morning to dismantle tents and remove debris.

The initial order to disperse came shortly before 3 a.m., but arrests weren’t made until after 6 a.m.

Around 6:25 this morning, police marched lock-step through the camp, moving protesters into the street.

“The whole world is watching,” chanted some protesters.

A core group of about 25 people remained around a makeshift structure that served as the camp’s kitchen and medical tent, dubbed by protesters the “thunderdome.”

Some of the core protesters who refused to leave were physically lifted by police, moved out of the immediate area and then allowed to disperse on their own.

“I don’t know why I’m being detained,” said Patricia Hughes, a nurse, as she was dragged from the area on her knees read more…
