BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - 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 tells The Daily Camera the school is waiting for invoices from agencies that assisted in the crackdown.
After more than 10,000 people attended last year's marijuana rally on Norlin Quadrangle, university officials decided this year to ramp up police presence and to apply stinky fish-based fertilizer to the area.
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.
Campus officials have said they expect the costs associated with this year's enforcement to be even higher.
