For students at CSU, Colorado has been a memorable place to celebrate 4/20.

“The Snoop Dog and Wiz Khalifa concert I went to my senior year is my most memorable 4/20,” journalism major Josh Griesemer said. “It was on 4/20 and those are two of the biggest stoners in the world. It was at Red Rocks and if you were 50 rows up, you couldn’t see the stage because everyone was lighting up. If you were just to breathe in the air, you would get high. It was a good time time.”
