Marijuana rallies planned to mark ‘4/20’
April 20, 2010
DENVER (AP) – Pot smokers from Denver to Durango are gathering to call for the drug’s legalization.
Tuesday is April 20, or 4/20, a number used by many to denote marijuana. The festivities in Denver include a daylong rally in Civic Center Park. The Denver event will include remarks from the director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.
An unauthorized public smoking event is expected to draw thousands at the University of Colorado in Boulder.
And in Durango, an evening concert is planned to promote a proposal to decriminalize marijuana in small amounts for adults.
Activists are urging Denver rally goers to also stop by the state Capitol, where lawmakers plan to debate proposed regulations for dispensaries that sell legal medical marijuana.
