As in past years, UCSC police and administration are restricting 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. Do not park on Empire Grade. Give yourselves plenty of time to get to Porter Meadow, it's worth it!!

You are all invited.
Event Type Party/Street Party
After a long, cold and rainy winter, spring is finally here! It's time for the annual 420 celebration at Porter Meadow, UC Santa Cruz!

April 20, aka 4/20, is the international day to gather and celebrate cannabis (marijuana)! The year is 2011 and more people than ever are stepping out of the "Cannabis Closet" to reduce cultural stigmas around the use of cannabis, and to promote all of its many positive uses for food, fuel, fiber and medicine.

Hang out, meet lots of people who love cannabis, 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!

Pack Your Trash. Leave No Trace.

Re: Message to faculty and staff regarding "4-20"

UCSC anticipates that next week, as in recent years, there will be an unsanctioned "4-20" gathering on campus. It is likely to be disruptive for many on campus and in the surrounding community. This message is sent to help members of the campus community, others with valid reasons for visiting UCSC on the afternoon of April 20, and campus neighbors plan accordingly.

To minimize this anticipated disruption, the following measures will be in place next Wednesday, April 20:

. All inbound traffic at the campus's West entrance will be diverted beginning at 2:15 pm.

. Metro buses will enter campus through the Main Entrance only, travel up Coolidge, and loop back to the Main Entrance via Hagar. Metro buses during this period of time will only make one stop in the campus core, on Hagar between Quarry Plaza and OPERS.

. A reduced number of campus shuttles will be in operation connecting the east and west sides of campus, following the normal "core" route west before turning uphill on Heller, and returning along McLaughlin to the east side of campus. (Disability van service, with the possible exception of delays caused by traffic congestion, will be unaffected by these changes.)

. Campus parking regulations will be strictly enforced.

. Sections of Empire Grade, uphill from the Arboretum, will be designated as a tow-away zone. Extra patrols will be on duty to enforce this restriction, and vehicles will be ticketed and towed at owners' expense.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Saturday Apr 16th, 2011 12:28 PM likely to be disruptive????

The ONLY disruption this event has EVER CAUSED
has come from UCSC officials who restrict access to
campus to those who wish to attend business there.

The event itself---a peaceful, public assembly in civil disobedience of a law against cannabis--has never been disruptive of any sanctioned campus activity.

Bring back parking! Bring back bus access!
Stop this pre-emptive attack on peaceable assembly by our best and our brightest!!

Oh, and check out the video I did two years ago:
