Denver police issue dozens of citations at marijuana events

DENVER (AP) — Denver police say there have been no major problems as marijuana celebrations continued for a second day.

On Saturday, police issued about 60 citations. Police say most were for public consumption. No information was available on any arrests on Sunday.

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.

The origins of the number 420 as a code for marijuana are murky. Fans of the drug have long marked April 20 as a day to enjoy pot and call for increased legal access to the drug.

    Hasn’t this country and it’s people had enough of these lying corrupt politicians ruining this country. They’re only in it for themselves and their bank accounts. Term limits and family dynasties limits are needed. Surely she isn’t the best the dems. can come up with. Or is she?

    Please, America, save us from the prospect of this witch becoming our next president – if you thought Obama was a failure, this is a serious downgrade! The last thing this country needs is another Democrat in the White House.

    Obama has crippled the US economy. Everybody I know is either out of work or under-employed. I haven’t had a raise in years despite all my expenses increasing from year to year. My health insurance is now up to $400/month. Before the government touched it, it was $250/month! My auto insurance, which the government has yet to ruin, is thankfully only $25/month (from Insurance Panda). Please, Obama! Don’t try to socialize auto insurance!

    The official Clinton motto: “Cheat until caught, and then lie!” The Clintons still don’t think that laws apply to them.

    She cannot be trusted.

    She’s been in public life for over 40 years and needs to go away and be a grandmother for the next 20 years if she lives that long. After all she’s 67 years old and needs to retire . We need new blood.
