Denver police issue dozens of citations at pot events
DENVER — Denver police say they issued about 60 citations on Saturday related to marijuana celebrations in the city.
While recreational use of marijuana is legal in Colorado, people can’t use it in public. But the law is widely flouted, especially around the 4/20 celebrations.
Marijuana tourists in town are already celebrating Monday’s unofficial stoner holiday of 4/20.
One of the biggest festivals concludes Sunday in downtown Denver’s Civic Center Park.
The origins of the number 420 as a code for marijuana are murky. But fans of the drug have long marked April 20 as a day to enjoy pot and call for increased legal access to the drug.
