4/20 at CU-Boulder: Attorney may seek permit to hold pot rally on campus despite closure

CU-Boulder recently announced that it would close its campus on April 20 for the second consecutive year in an effort to squelch the annual 4/20 rally traditionally held there.

Attorney Rob Corry, who last year took CU to court in an unsuccessful attempt to thwart the closure, has some new tactics to fight the decision, such as possibly filing for a permit to hold a pot rally on the grounds despite the shutdown. Still, he's not ruling out the possibility of filing another complaint over the action.
