University of Colorado security officers warned early-morning dog walkers and joggers about the campus being closed to the public today – a 4/20 shut-down that is in its second year and is an effort to end the unsanctioned pot smoke-out that had grown beyond 10,000 people in past years.

This is the second year that CU officials have shut down the Boulder campus and the closure is a continuation of the school’s efforts to end the pot smoke-out that had been staged on Norlin Quad in past years.

By 6 a.m. this morning, signs were posted throughout the campus warning of the closure and Norlin Quad is scheduled to be closed off later today. Those who violate the closure can be arrested on trespassing charges, a misdemeanor that carries up to a $750 fine and six months in jail read more…

As the clock struck midnight on April 20, Snoop Lion tossed joints to the crowd, balloons fell from the ceiling and the first legal 4/20 in Denver had officially begun.

The evening at the Fillmore Auditorium started with a screening of Snoop’s film, “Reincarnated” and a question and answer session with the rapper. After a montage about Snoop’s marijuana advocacy, he was awarded the High Times Lester Grinspoon Lifetime Achievement Award. Fitting for both the honor and the celebration, Snoop’s acceptance speech was a bong rip from the award itself (because it doubled as a bong).

Fans showered the stage with marijuana laced gifts, including a brownie that someone had taken a bite out of.

“How the hell you going to give me a brownie that you took a bite out of, man?,” Snoop said. He left the stage for a number of DJs to warm up the crowd before 4/20.

At approximately 11:55 p.m., DJ Snoopalicious took the stage to start a countdown to 4/20. He played until about 1 a.m., smoking with the crowd and filling the Fillmore with a 4/20-induced haze read more…

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.”

Given the nature of potheads and students, might this be an open invitation to gather? Tomorrow April 20 we’ll know the answer to that question. Are beer sales in Boulder dipping with the advancing sale of Marijuana in this West-Coastish college town just fifteen minutes from the Coors Brewery? 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.

Smoked Fish and Sassafras might be a good name for an album, at least it would have been in the 60s, in Boulder. Remember the Astronauts?
