Mon Apr 21 2014420 at UCSC: A Public Demonstration in Support of Cannabis
Mon Apr 21 2014Thousands Attend Annual 420 Celebration at UC Santa Cruz
Thousands of people, though not as many as in previous years, returned to Porter Meadow at UC Santa Cruz on April 20, 2014 (also Easter Sunday) to celebrate 420, the unorganized annual counterculture holiday. All these people have at least one thing in common; a love for smoking cannabis.
Similar to 420 in 2012 and 2013 at UCSC, many people preferred to be under the forest canopy bordering the meadow. In addition to smoking cannabis and socializing, people enjoyed live marching bands as well as music bumping from speakers under the trees, slacklining, hula hooping, and taking pictures with friends.
As in previous years, UC police officers surveilled the celebration, and men in orange vests documented attendees with video and still cameras.
