Perspectives on the Denver “420” Disruption
(StopTheDrugWar) Yesterday’s historic “420” rally in Denver, the first since Colorado voted to legalize marijuana last fall, was marred and cut short by violence. Two unidentified gunmen shot and wounded three people — two attendees were shot in the leg and were rushed to a nearby hospital with “non-life-threatening-injuries,” and a teen was grazed by a bullet and walked there, according to the Denver Post. Attendees fled the scene, and the remainder of the event as well a smaller one planned for today were canceled.
It was not the kind of day those three people or their friends had planned, and that’s the most important thing to keep in mind. It was also not the kind of day that thousands attending including many who traveled from afar had planned either. It’s lucky there were no trampling injuries, at least no serious ones, apparently.
