CU-Boulder deploys police, fish fertilizer this morning in bid to quash 4/20

University enacts closure after legal challenge fails

There's a visible police presence at the University of Colorado this morning as administrators roll out their well-publicized attempt to snuff out the annual 4/20 smoke-out, shutting down Norlin Quad entirely and checking IDs of students and employees.
....

Around 6:30 a.m., campus workers began applying fish-based fertilizer to Norlin Quad as a deterrent to would-be gatherers -- and it's already working. One student who was about to cross the quad stopped in her tracks, saying, "Oh, that smells disgusting. Never mind." She turned and walked in the other direction.
....

CU plans to have officers at every major pedestrian and vehicle entrance to the university checking IDs. Students and employees will be granted access, but anyone without Buff OneCards will be "cordially" told the campus is closed, according to CU police spokesman Ryan Huff.
....

CU officials have not fenced off Norlin Quad, which has been the site of the smoke-out for the last few years. The large grassy field had a patrol car parked at each corner early this morning, but by a little after 7 a.m., they were gone. There are signs warning that the area is closed and "violators are subject to criminal prosecution."

Sounds like overkill, a little?

Don't miss the comments, especially the great one from "colorado 420" that starts out:

"Pooh-Pooh to the Stoners!" DiStefano was grinch-ish-ly humming. "They're finding out now that no 4/20 is coming!" "They're just waking up! I know just what they'll do!" "Their mouths will hang open a minute or two. Then the Stoners down in Boulder will all cry Boo-Hoo!"


Edited, in lots of places, to replace " with "

2. so the giant CO limbaugh station IDs itself as "850 KOA, home of the buffs and Rush Limbaugh!"

while it dominates local elections to get republican regents and chancellors and eggs on the cops.

it's another GOP power move like what happens all over the country.

students and faculty need to end the unholy alliance of their unis with RW talk radio ....

here are 76 universities for limbaugh , on 170 of his stations....

6. I Think KOA Airs Buff Games

and the Broncos.
While the progressive station airs CSU games, mostly women teams.

19. i think the RW radio monopoly wouldn't last without all that university support

no uni can justify endorsing RW radio- makes their mission statement a joke all unis need to get off partisan talk radio of any kind, IMO

3. OMG! The fear of marijuana! What a frightful plant. Even the police and military are so frightened

of it they feel a need to use weapons of fire and poison to destroy it. They cower in it's presence so they feel a need to block the 'gathering of people' that it causes. Destroy all cookies and brownies now!!!!

4. Geez, has anyone ever gotten stoned and gone on a crime spree?!

This is so stupid. I WAY prefer being around a stoner than a drunk--or God forbid--a tweaker. Hell, if I was a cop I'd want all college kids to stay stoned. Then they'd just stay home and eat Doritos. No crime!

5. waste?

 

Another waste of tax payer dollars, evidently with their acquiescence, in 'The War on Drugs'. And by the way, all informed people know who the real drug dealers are

10. Amazing they claim they have no money, but suddenly find it and

use that to abrogate a little weed.

But hey it's okay for alcohol, firearms and tobacco - they are all legal and dangerous ways to get high.

So sad.

17. The 'Corporatization' of Campus Life

CU is concerned about its image ... the traditional 4/20 protest is just too much now for 'business oriented' administration.

But then what do you expect from CU's own 'Il Duce' --- the $400,000 a year chancellor Philip P. DiStefano.

Oh, by the way, CU students ... make sure and thank DiStefano and the Regents for the 5 percent increase in your tuition next year; that will help pay for the extra campus cops, the fish fertilizer and, of course, the multi-hundred thousand dollar salaries of the top administrators.
