4/20 in Denver: Best photos, 2009-2012

We at Westword strive to be your go-to source for news about 4/20 -- and we've been covering the big event at Civic Center Park for years. As proof, we offer the following photos, culled from five different 4/20 slide shows snapped between 2009 and 2012.

Be sure to click on the links in the photo captions to look at the original slide shows in their entirety (warning: some of them are NSFW). They should get you prepared for our 4/20 in Denver 2013 coverage, coming soon. Check out the samples below.
