(DenverPost) Sunday was the first time in 11 years that Easter and the day marijuana enthusiasts call 4/20 fell on the same day. And perhaps the most whipsaw 14 hours in Red Rocks history — churchgoers singing “Amazing Grace” in the morning, Snoop Dogg singing “Smoke the Weed” in the evening — was a fitting peculiarity for a day when a green sheen spread across Denver like never before.
Tens of thousands of people browsed, danced, hula-hooped and puffed at the annual 4/20 rally in Civic Center, putting up a collective smoke cloud at 4:20 p.m. that quickly dissipated in the breeze. Tens of thousands more packed into the High Times Cannabis Cup, a marijuana convention of sorts, at the Denver Mart north of downtown. Others attended one of dozens of marijuana-themed concerts, comedy shows, trade shows, product launches and other events spread throughout the city.
"People around the world are looking at Denver on this day that sense has come to drug policy," said Leftover Salmon band member Vince Herman, sitting in the basement of Denver Kush Club just before taking the stage at 4:20 p.m. "I feel really glad that we can have a role celebrating in the streets."
On the whole, authorities reported no major problems.
By late afternoon, Denver police had issued 47 citations for public marijuana consumption at the downtown rally, as well as 16 other arrests or citations for other reasons. Denver Health Medical Center paramedics had treated 14 people, including three who were taken to detox. The hospital’s emergency room had treated about a half-dozen people, most of whom had passed out through a combination of sun and substance use.
