Thousands Celebrate 420 at Porter Meadow

thousands of people got stoned on Four Twenty, 2008, despite university attempts to harsh their mellow. crowd participants noted the numbers appeared to be the biggest crowd ever for 420. diversity was awesome. "nadie es ilegal" and "disarm ucsc no war" appeared on large banners. there were kites, drum circles, face painting, all kinds of joints, bongs, pipes and ounces rolled into blunts.
an electric road construction sign greeted people advancing on bay street toward the main entrance reading, "restricted access today 4-20." this didn't seem to deter people from walking up empire grade, taking the path from the arboretum up through oakes college, and making their way to porter meadow.

I have to say, the police were in fine form. The diligently checked our IDs several times to make sure that my minivan full of little children coming back from soccer tryouts was not in fact a nefarious group of evildoers on their way to a stoning. Admittedly by then it was about 5:20 pm, but hey, it is Santa Cruz. They seemed a tad ... paranoid.

On 4/20, around 2 or three hundred persons
celebrated in Golden Gate Park;
at Hippie Hill (Sharon Meadow).

Informal event was still going at sunset.
