At 4:20 p.m. on April 20 a haze of smoke could be seen over Denver’s Civic Center Park as people lit up for this year’s 4/20 rally.
Last year a shooting sent thousands of people running from Civic Center Park during the 4/20 rally. Now there are new security measures in place.
This year’s event in Denver’s Civic Center Park is the first since recreational marijuana became legal in Colorado. What used to be a rally in Denver has turned into a pot festival with plenty of police looking on.

Keeping Civic Center Park safe this weekend is a high priority for law enforcement after the celebration was cut short when shots rang out last year.
