There is nothing quite like crazy Boulderites to make you never want to smoke pot. The dirty hippies that descend on CU campus and the surrounding area on April 20th are bat-shit crazy losers who have absolutely no ambition, drive or focus in their lives. It is 11 AM on 4/20 and I have seen not one, but two, adults dressed up like marijuana plants. The people of this city will make you want to be more straight-edge than you actually care to be.
Security on Norlin Quad, one of the main lawn drags of CU’s campus, is higher than it has ever been. The entire quad is roped off with police security tape and uniformed police officers are roaming up and down the sidewalks. Some idiot police chief even gave them motorcycles, and there’s a group of policemen riding proud around the bike lanes circling campus. Those are the lucky ones: not because they get to look like complete douchebags riding a motorcycle in a bike lane; but because they don’t have to patrol the quad, which CU administration sprayed with fish fertilizer last night to deter people from gathering on the lawns this afternoon.
Any respect I had for this school has diminished. Rumor is that they spent $200k on anti-4/20 activities, including sponsoring a free Wyclef concert. That’s it, CU: get your student body to not smoke pot by putting on a free Wyclef concert. Fucking brilliant.
