Marijuana enthusiasts continue ‘High Holiday’ celebration on 4/20 in Denver
DENVER – Marijuana celebrations continued Monday in Denver, where thousands gathered at festivals and concerts over the weekend.
One of the biggest festivals concluded Sunday in downtown Denver’s Civic Center Park, however protesters encouraged people to gather in front of the Capitol building Monday at 4:20 p.m.
On Monday, an estimated 2,000 people gathered at Denver’s Veterans Park across from the Capitol building. A very visible cloud of smoke could be seen over the park at 4:20 p.m.
“I moved here from Florida because I didn’t want to be prosecuted for doing something as simple as smoking marijuana,” said Mark Clipp, a licensed real estate broker.
Jamie Perino, owner of Euflora Recreational marijuana shops said the 16th Street store in downtown had its best sales day ever on Saturday.
“I would say it was more consistent than slammed this year,” said Perino.
Perino said added stafffing combined with new technology, like scanners that allow consumers to scan what they want and then check-out with their scanners, allowed the store to move customers through more quickly and efficiently.
The High Times Cannabis Cup continues Monday, but organizers are encouraging people to leave in time to attend the protest.
“Make sure you leave early to get to Lincoln Park by 4:20 p.m., across the street from the state Capitol, for public smokeout and civil disobedience,” organizers stated. “Come back for Cup awards.”
7NEWS saw people running on Speer to reach the gathering in time, and AIRTRACKER7 was overhead when the crowd let out a collective puff of smoke at 4:20 p.m.
“The civil disobedience will continue!!!” the Colorado 420 Coalition stated.
Police are reminding celebrators that Colorado doesn’t allow public consumption of the drug. But the law is widely flouted, especially around the 4/20 celebrations.
Denver police told 7NEWS that 160 tickets for public consumption of marijuana were issued over the weekend.
Also being held Monday is Snoop Dogg’s Wellness Retreat with ASAP Rocky and 2 Chainz at Fiddlers Green Amphitheatre in Englewood. That is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m., presumably to allow Snoop to partake in the festivities at 4:20 p.m.
The Cannabis Cup is open from noon through 7 p.m.
