pot smoke-out draws crowd of 10,000
Police issue zero tickets during annual marijuana celebration
By Vanessa Miller
Sunday, April 20, 2008

Here are some comments overheard during the University of Colorado's massive 4/20 smoke-out Sunday:

"People are getting out their best pot and hippie clothes today." -- CU freshman Emily Benson, 19

"I'm not smoking this year. My boss told me not to come back stoned." -- An employee for Bova's Pantry and Ice Cream, who didn't want to be named, but said he took his hour break to join the celebration

"This is impressive. I'm a little intimidated." -- Ricardo Franklin, 19, a freshman at Colorado State University who came to Boulder for the day

"I need to go higher." -- A student who was climbing a tree while smoking a joint

"It's 4:33. It took me 13 minutes to get rid of them. Wow." -- CU junior Max Lichtenstein, 21, said about the 126 Rice Krispies Treats he passed out at Sunday's event

"Go to the sidewalk. The left one. That one. Not that left. Go right." -- A woman on her cell phone trying to meet a friend in a crowd of thousands

"Peanut butter and jelly! Help pay for my breathalyzer tests!" -- CU sophomore Barrett Betz, 20, who couldn't smoke pot at this year's 4/20 event because of previous legal trouble and instead decided to sell snacks

"You can call him, but he's probably really high and won't be able to find his phone." -- One man said to his friend while leaving the Norlin Quadrangle.

A crowd of about 10,000 people collectively began counting down on the University of Colorado's Norlin Quadrangle just before 4:20 p.m. Sunday.

Yet the massive puff of pot smoke that hovers over CU's Boulder campus every April 20 -- the date of an annual, internationally recognized celebration of marijuana -- began rising over the sea of heads earlier than normal this year.

"Oh forget it," one student said, aborting the countdown to 4:20 p.m. and lighting his pipe early. He closed his eyes, taking a deep, long drag.

"Sweet."

Although it's become an annual and renowned event at CU, this year's 4/20 celebration was different in some ways than in many previous years: The crowd was so large it migrated from the long-traditional site of Farrand Field to the larger Norlin Quad; festivities kicked off earlier than normal with daytime concerts; and CU police handed out zero citations.

“At this point, none are anticipated,” said CU police Cmdr. Brad Wiesley.

Officers in the past have gone to great lengths to catch people in the illegal act of smoking pot on 4/20.

In 2006, CU police dispatched undercover photographers to snap pictures of smokers. Photos of 150 alleged offenders then were posted on the department’s Web site, and witnesses were offered $50 to positively identify the suspects — who then were ticketed. Another year, smokers on Farrand were doused with sprinklers.

“We can’t do the same thing year after year,” Wiesley said hours before Sunday’s smoking began. “So I doubt we’ll do anything like the pictures. ... There’s no way our 12 to 15 officers are going to be able to deal with a crowd of 10,000. We just can’t do strong enforcement when we’re outnumbered 700 or 800 to one.”

About 15 CU officers and a half-dozen deputies with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office had a presence Sunday among the mass of pot smokers, who bounced giant balls and tossed Frisbees through the haze. CU police did handle four medical-related calls for health issues including dehydration; two people were taken to Boulder Community Hospital.

Closer to downtown, a more “adult” 4/20 gathering also took place at Boulder’s Central Park for non-students looking to avoid the CU foot traffic. But that event had a much smaller turnout and was mostly uneventful.

The crowd size at last year’s CU gathering was rumored to have topped 5,000, Wiesley said, meaning this year’s gathering drew about double.

“I guess it’s not like they had to cut a 4 p.m. class to go do it,” Wiesley said, speculating as to why so many more people showed up. “People are not all that busy at 4:20 p.m. in the afternoon on a Sunday.”

From the steps of Norlin Library, some of the thousands present said the turnout appeared comparable to that of a peace march or protest.

“You guys need to go stand on those stairs,” one girl shouted to her friends, who were seated in a circle on the quadrangle grass. “You don’t even understand.”

Smoke-out participants — thousands of whom wore green or T-shirts promoting pot — climbed trees, played the bongos, snapped pictures and had miniature picnics.

That, of course, after they sparked the weed they had come to smoke.

CU freshman Emily Benson, 19, of Kansas City, said she thinks the decriminalization of marijuana will become a hot topic in the upcoming political season and said she felt part of something bigger than just a smoke-out on Sunday.

“We’re at the starting point of a movement,” she said. “This is a big part of the reason I applied here — for the weed atmosphere.”

Although CU junior Max Lichtenstein, 21, isn’t into marijuana or smoking, he also felt Sunday’s event was a chance to do something “bigger” than himself. He passed out 126 Rice Krispies treats with messages attached asking that they act out against the injustices in Darfur.

“Tomorrow, when you’re sober ... call the White House at 202-456-1414,” the note read.

“I just like being generous and doing nice things,” he said. “I’m like a good Samaritan.”

CU senior Tyler Molvig, 24, said that rather than condemning the smoke-out, CU and the city should embrace it as a money-making opportunity.

“I mean, it’s gonna happen regardless,” he said.

Entrepreneur Barrett Betz, 20, conceived of the potential financial benefit 4/20 holds earlier this year, and sold peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, Hostess snack cakes and bottled water for a $1.

“Peanut butter and jelly!” he screamed to passers-by who were parched and eager to satisfy their munchies. “I’m doing very well.”

One woman was hopeful Betz’s treats were charged with some special ingredients.

“Are these magical?” she asked, only to be disappointed. “Why aren’t you selling magical ones? I mean, it’s cool — but c’mon.”

Smoking weed on April 20 is such a cliche.  Like the Fonz didn't go out with chicks on Saturday, "amateur night."  And why in April, a month that should be deleted from the calendar.

As someone with an April birthday, I am convinced Eliot was right in calling it the "cruellist month."  Lincoln shot 1865 (on my birthday!), the SF earthquake (1906), MLK assassination (1968),  the Titanic sinking (also on my birthday, 1915), the Fuhrer's birthday (1895) and death (1945), Chernobyl (1986), Rodney King riots (1992), Oklahoma City (1995), Columbine, Cobain, Waco, and more!

Wars that started in April:  American Revolution (1775), Civil War (Fort Sumter 1861), Armenian genocide (1914),  Bosnian War (1992), Rwandan Genocide (1994).

But that's just the thing -- I don't think ANY of those people were smoking dope.  If they had been, they would've been to damn lazy and hungry to worry about picking fights or offing other people  Better seen on weed!

When i smoked weed, it would take me hours to get out of the house, just to go to the store to buy some food. I would spend alot of time trying to get ready, then I'd get distracted, then I couldn't find my keys. I'd look and look for hours, sometimes ending up in a room, and forgetting what I was doing there in the first place. After absolute frustration and creeping paranoia, i would find the keys, sitting in plain view in a place I looked ten times over. Then hyper paranoia would hit. I'd finally get out of the house, totally in my head, self centered and insecure. Get to the store, clumsily look for what i was going to buy, feel like everyone was watching me, which eventually came true, since i was acting weird. Then I'd rush home, totally freaked out, get high again and start the process all over. This is why i don't smoke weed anymore, i'd rather smoke crack and shoot heroin, that weed shit is so bad for me. I've come to find out, almost all people smoking weed are going through this too... Especially when you're doing it with other people, and in your head, all insecure and uncomfortable, wondering if anyone likes you....

Don't forget staring into the refrigerator!  

I also used to drive a half hour down the highway to work and get a paranoid feeling I forgot to turn off the burner on the stove after having made my coffee.  I'd go back, and invariably, I was wrong and it was off.  That still happens, years after I gave it up.

P.S. Nice R.D.D. quote there, mojman!

Okay, just want to correct myself -- MAYBE the people involved with Titanic and Chernobyl WERE smoking pot after all...
