CU: Cost of pot fest crackdown unknown
BOULDER University of Colorado officials say it will take a few weeks to determine the cost of a crackdown on the 4/20 marijuana celebration on the Boulder campus.
University spokesman Bronson Hilliard told the Daily Camera of Boulder the school is waiting for invoices from agencies that assisted in the crackdown.
In past years, the unsanctioned April 20 pot smoke-out cost the school about $50,000, with expenses including hiring event staff and extra police officers from outside agencies.
