CU-Boulder 4/20 student protesters: Case dropped after they volunteer for Amendment 64

CU-Boulder closed Norlin Quad as part of its attempt to shrink the annual 4/20 event on campus. Three CU students were cited for trespassing on the Quad that day, with lawyer Sean McAllister defending them on First Amendment grounds. Now, the case has been dismissed after the students did a few hours of community service -- volunteering for Amendment 64, the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act. McAllister is thrilled by the outcome.
