In past years, the UCSC police and administration have restricted access to campus by only allowing people with UCSC identification to drive onto campus. The best ways for getting onto campus and over to Porter Meadow are to take the bus or walk. Avoid trying to park on Empire Grade. Give yourselves plenty of time to get to Porter Meadow, it's worth it!!

You are all invited.
Event Type Vigil/Ritual
Organizer/AuthorUCSC Student
Spring is finally here, and it's time for the annual 420 celebration at Porter Meadow, UC Santa Cruz!

4/20, aka April 20, is the international day to gather and celebrate marijuana! The year is 2010 and more people than ever are stepping out of the "Cannabis Closet" to reduce cultural stigmas around the use of marijuana.

Hang out, meet lots of people who love marijuana, and enjoy a nice day in a gorgeous meadow at a public university.

Please help to ensure that Porter Meadow is free of trash.
Anything that you pack-in must be packed out! There are no trash cans in Porter Meadow.

Pack Your Trash. Leave No Trace.

Keep contributing to the drug wars and deaths in Mexico. Or have you not taken the time to think about where you drugs come from?

Charles Bowden on “Murder City: Ciudad Juárez and the Global Economy’s New Killing Fields”

CHARLES BOWDEN: OK, I’ll tell you about the city now. Twenty-five percent of the houses have been abandoned in a city of poverty where housing’s short. They’ve got a bumper crop there now: 10,000 new orphans from the slaughter. Forty percent of the businesses have closed. Thirty to sixty thousand people have fled to the United States. You know, this is a city dying. And I must say, this was the poster child for NAFTA.

This April 20, dress in white to show your support for peace in Mexican soil over drug trafficking.

Our strength will be taken from the numbers we find and hopefully we can make a statement that can be followed in other college campuses around the country and the world.


Vístete de blanco este 20 de abril para demostrar tu interés por la paz en México y protestar contra la violencia que ha creado el narcotráfico, en esta avalancha que ha rodeado nuestro país.

Este evento empieza en Cornell, una universidad en el estado de Nueva York, pero queremos que sea tan amplio como sea posible. Vístete de blanco y dile a todos los que conozcas. Creemos un ambiente donde nuestros números muestren que queremos paz.

i'm glad its raining tomorrow. hopefully it will make it a little more feasible for me to catch the bus so i can get that education i'm paying so much for. how is smoking weed counter cultural? how is an enormous group of privelaged hippies and bros hanging out and doing drugs they bought using capital remotely counter cultural?

most of the pot being smoked here undoubtably comes from california, not mexico. here in northern california its more likely to come from medocino or humbolt counties; shipping it up from mexico makes no sense. it grows EVERWHERE.
