At 4:20 p.m. in Denver’s Civic Center Park on Sunday, Scott Eskra, Cheri Clark and thousands of others lit up vapor pens, joints, blunts and bongs.
"Light that shit up!" came a shout from the stage of Denver’s 420 Rally.
"Whoooohoo!" shouted Eskra, as a cloud of marijuana smoke encompassed the park between Colorado’s state Capitol and Denver’s City Hall.
Then hip-hop artist B.o.B. took the stage, performing his song, “High as Hell.”
April 20 events — so-called, according to one version of the origin story, because 420 was the police radio code for marijuana smoking in progress — began sometime in the 1990s in California. These days, informal gatherings occur in Canada, California and elsewhere.
Say ahhh !
