Photos: Nugless Outnumbered During 4/20 Smokeout at Civic Center Park


As we've reported, the Denver cops issued around 160 citations during 4/20 events over the weekend, despite insisting that they "ain't hatin'."

And at the moment of this post's scheduled publication, attendees at a 4/20 political rally at Lincoln Park may well be lighting up, despite warnings from organizers that public consumption remains illegal, much to many supporters' chagrin.

But while the person in the photo above may have been nugless, plenty of others who gathered at Civic Center Park for festivities that included a concert by Rick Ross seemed to be fully supplied — and plenty of them were willing to risk the cops' wrath in order to blaze.

Photographer Brandon Marshall was on hand to capture the scene. Check out a sampling of his photos below, and to see the complete 4/20 weekend smokeout at Civic Center Park slideshow, click here.
