Dave Meyer, Director of Public Safety, has been spotted on the hill, crushing peoples’ joints.
Witnesses on the scene say: “What a dick.”
Although it’s become an annual and renowned event at CU, this year’s 4/20 celebration was different in some ways than in many previous years: The crowd was so large it migrated from the long-traditional site of Farrand Field to the larger Norlin Quad; festivities kicked off earlier than normal with daytime concerts; and CU police handed out zero citations…
Officers in the past have gone to great lengths to catch people in the illegal act of smoking pot on 4/20. In 2006, CU police dispatched undercover photographers to snap pictures of smokers. Photos of 150 alleged offenders then were posted on the department’s Web site, and witnesses were offered $50 to positively identify the suspects — who then were ticketed. Another year, smokers on Farrand were doused with sprinklers.

Holly found this gem of advertising from campusfood:
Public safety had a presence on foss hill last year, but only a few students got in trouble. Their limited enforcement policy may be at an end. This email was recently sent to Wesleyan’s reslife staff. I wouldn’t be surprised if similar emails were sent in previous years though, so perhaps this really doesn’t mean anything.
As you know, Sunday, April 20th is “4/20,” and many students are planning to meet on Foss Hill at 4:20 PM for a unified pot-smoking party. Please remind your residents that possession/use of marijuana is a violation of the Code of Non Academic Conduct and inform them that Public Safety will be on Foss Hill on Sunday afternoon.
I hope you all get an opportunity to enjoy some of the many WesFest events this weekend.
