A heavy cloud of marijuana smoke hanging over Civic Center Park tells you all you need to know: 420 has arrived.
Tens of thousands of marijuana enthusiasts celebrated increasing cannabis legalization with rallies across the country on Thursday, April 20.
“Awesome!” yelled Kevin Barron, a marijuana tourist who came from North Carolina to join the Denver festivities, as he took a drag on a joint. “Unbelievable.”
In Denver, thousands of people partied to live music and then lit up en mass at 4:20 p.m. local time. Outside Congress, legalization activists handed out at free joints until they were shut down by Capitol Police, who arrested organizer Adam Eidinger.
