The Daily Camera is reporting that the University of Colorado-Boulder is finally acting on its much-expressed sentiment of disdain towards the 10,000 or so people who tend to gather on campus on April 20 for reefer smoking.
CU officials — who, for the first time ever, have the support of student leaders who also want to end the unsanctioned April 20 event — warned students today that those busted smoking pot in public could face a $100 fine and additional sanctions from CU's Office of Student Conduct. Those with medical marijuana registry cards risk having them revoked upon conviction.
"It needs to end,” Chancellor Phil DiStefano said of 4/20 today in a news release.
Meanwhile, in an effort to keep students away from the Norlin Quad, student leaders have announced that they'll host a free, student-only hip-hop concert featuring singer-songwriter and former Fugees member Wyclef Jean on the afternoon of 4/20 in the Coors Event Center.
