Shots were fired in the area of the 4/20 marijuana rally being held at Civic Center Park in Denver, KDVR.com reports. Denver police say one person has been shot in the leg and another is down with unknown injuries. Witnesses say they heard three or more shots about 20 minutes after 4:20 p.m. Police swarmed the scene, and crime tape was around the pavilion where the celebration was being held. Aerial footage showed the massive crowd frantically running from the park. The pot celebration Saturday was the first since Colorado and Washington made marijuana legal for recreational use.

A sizable police force on motorcycles and horses watched the celebration. But officers didn't arrest people for smoking in public, which is still illegal.

So, it's NOT illegal.

Sounds to me like somebody should have worried more about protecting their second amendment rights and less about getting high.

Just want to toss this out there, the guy we just had problems with here in Nevada, the crazy dude who was caught after he was thrown out of the Legislature and arrested traveling in California is now being charged with unlawful possession of a firearm because he is an admitted pot smoker...ie he doesn't have a medical permit.

Dope smokers might want to consider what they're gaining vs what they are losing.

I knew an old pot head who had a bunch of guns and he said he’d never give them up. I haven’t heard anything about him in years but would like to talk to him now.

This week, Eric Holder issued a statement regarding the legalization of marijuana by several states, WA being one of those. Holder said that the federal government is still evaluating their options and that whatever they decide, they must consider the effect on the children.

Now, that could mean anything. I would hope that he was considering the recent information that heavy marijuana use (four times a week) is not harmless for young people, but I am not sure that is what he meant.

“Police are looking for two shooting suspects. One man is described as a black male with a light complexion, who is 6-foot-tall and 180 pounds. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, black pants, and a Caronlina baseball hat.
The second suspect is described as a black male who was wearing a black and white checkered shirt.”

If Obama had a son....

The time I am referencing Denny's was open 24 hours a day. I know, I was a participant!

There was nothing like a good breakfast in the early hours after a great night of dancing and, well, just some good fun!

Ah, I miss the 80's and being in my 20's!

More normal looking guys than weirdos.

One of the most conservative and best men I’ve ever known was a weird looking long haired guy.
