As all of us in are aware, this coming weekend is 4/20, and that comes a slew of concerts to celebrate the “high” holiday. If you were planning on attending the famed annual 4/20 smoke out on CU campus this year, I would advise against it. Unlike other years, the University is closing the whole campus to the public and closing Norlin Quad to everyone. “Those ticketed for trespassing could face up to six months in jail and a $750 fine — stiffer than penalties for being busted small amounts of marijuana.” That being said, student organizers are spending $150,000 on a concert on campus instead. The event is FREE and for students only. If you’re not a student (or if you are), we’ve got some killer shows to go to instead.
