DENVER (AP) — Organizers of a marijuana rally have been fined $12,000 and banned from holding the event in Denver for three years after trash was found scattered at Civic Center Park the next morning.
KMGH-TV reports Denver Parks and Recreation officials issued the penalties after finding the 4/20 Rally violated city requirements with regard to trash management and public safety and security.
Organizer Santino Walter has said the trash was bagged and ready to be picked up the morning after the April 20 event, and that people in the park overnight may have ripped open the bags looking for cans or food.
Organizers and volunteers had the trash picked up by noon the next day.
