Wyclef Jean Contract Bars Pot References

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — The contract for Wyclef Jean’s performance at the University of Colorado bars him from making direct references to marijuana and other illegal drugs.

The contract states Jean will be paid $80,000 for his performance on Friday. The performance is timed to coincide with the annual pot gathering on campus at 4:20 p.m.

Jean’s contract also bars him from referencing 4/20, the unofficial holiday celebrating marijuana.

The campus also spread foul smelling fish fertilizer on the quadrangle where the gathering usually takes place in an effort to prevent the gathering.

The concert is free to all university students but isn’t open to the general public.
