The Denver 420 Rally has been a well-known festival for many years.
This year, people waited in long lines, while it on and off rained, to get into the civic center before the 4:20 Countdown.
Inside the civic center they would be able to visit vendors that were selling glass pipes, clothing, art, food, and would also be able to see 2 Chainz free performance.
Of course a little chaos is expected at any festival.
Five people were arrested and 20 people received civil citations.
Meanwhile in Washington, one man and two women were charged with possession with intent to distribute pot, and four women were charged with possession. The seven pro-pot activists were spotted by police as they were handing out joints to other 4/20 celebrators.
Nikolas Schiller, and organizer of the pro-pot activists, who planned to give out more than 1,000 joints, stated “no individual was in possession of more than 1 ounce of pot.”
“participants gave away about 100 joints to people with Congressional ID badges who were over 21 years old before police confiscated the rest of their pot.”
In Philadelphia, a 4/20 warehouse party was raided, and police seized over 50 pounds of cannabis. After 22 people were arrested, the mayor of Philadelphia stated that resources are wasted on “busts like the one in his city over the weekend.” Also stating that he “understands why police busted the party,” but also thinks that “marijuana legalization is the real solution.”
