- SUBJECT: The 420 gathering at CU-Boulder on April 20, 2010
- Dear CU student:
- As another April 20 approaches, we again are faced with concerns from
- students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni, regents and community members
- about the 420 gathering on the CU-Boulder campus.
- As we said last year, we share these concerns. An unsponsored gathering of
- thousands in the heart of our campus for the sole purpose of engaging in
- what is still unlawful activity is not only contrary to what we stand for as
- a university, it is a public safety challenge of the first order.
- With this in mind, on April 20, 2010, please do not participate in unlawful
- activity that devalues the reputation of your university and degree. At the
- same time, encourage your fellow Buffs to act with pride and remember who
- they really are - part of a dynamic environment of teaching, research,
- learning, and service composed of outstanding faculty and proud students and
- Be advised that on April 20 the following safety parameters will be
- -Obey the instructions of public safety officials at all times in entering
- and leaving campus, and act with concern for those around you, discouraging
- dangerous behavior of any kind.
- -Parking limitations similar to those during CU home football games will be
- enforced. Parking on campus will be greatly limited, available only at
- meters or for those holding CU parking permits. Traffic barricades will be
- set up at Colorado Avenue and Folsom Street and on 18th Street to limit
- traffic in the heart of campus. Please observe all parking regulations
- within the City of Boulder.
- -While police will be present on the Norlin Quad to support crowd safety,
- individuals found using marijuana on their way to or from the 420 gathering,
- or in other locations on campus, face a citation from CUPD. Likewise, no
- alcohol will be permitted on the Norlin Quad or elsewhere on campus, and
- intoxicated persons could be taken into custody or escorted to an alcohol
- recovery center, or both.
- -CU students who violate the alcohol or drug provisions of the CU Code of
- Conduct in the ways described above, or in other ways, are also subject to
- penalties from CU-Boulder's Office of Judicial Affairs.
- At the Norlin Quad, no vending of any merchandise or food will be permitted.
- No buying and selling of marijuana will be allowed. No barbecue grills,
- structures, slacklines, sporting or game apparatus, or large signs may be
- We want to re-emphasize that our intention in this communication is safety.
- This is an unsanctioned event on our campus, but regardless, we all desire
- it be carried out with no injuries to individuals and no damage to property.
- We ask for, and expect, your full cooperation in achieving this important
- Philip P. DiStefano, Chancellor
