CU’s 4/20 Smokeout Draws a Crowd of 8,000 to 10,000
If you would have asked me two days ago, if there was ever a reason why I would ever want to be in Colorado, my answer would be “hell no.” Yesterday they redeemed themselves in my eyes though, with their 4/20 Smokeout. Campus police estimated that the crowd had about 8,000 to 10,000 people showed up to celebrate the smokers holiday 4/20 by getting high at 4:20pm.
It doesn’t matter how many cops they bring, if there are 8,000 people there protesting there is not much they are going to be able to do about it.
Here is what some of the participants thought about it.
“I think it’s awesome — especially when that cloud rises up over the crowd and you know that everyone is doing the same thing at the same time,” said Ryan Van Loo, who came from Arapahoe Community College in Littleton to attend the with a group of friends.
“Usually people are so low-key about smoking, but this is the one day of the year that everyone can come out in the open and do it together.”
Here is some footage and photos from the event.
