The world’s “largest 4/20 event” drew thousands who gathered to celebrate cannabis this Saturday.
Colorado has allowed legal sales of recreational marijuana for five years now.
The dispensary chain Euflora organized this year’s event.
Despite the celebration, organizers urged attendees to leave their weed at home as public consumption is still illegal in Colorado.
Many instead lounged, enjoyed a drink and listened to live musical performances.
4/20 has long stood as a day of advocacy for legalized cannabis.
Since the drug’s legalization in Colorado, the event has evolved from its political roots.
As residents disperse at the end of the day, they look forward to next year’s celebration and hope for the trend of cannabis acceptance to continue.
