Operations won't be entirely normal: Extra police will be on duty and Norlin Quad, once ground zero for the 4/20 celebration that was once described as "an orgasm of cannabis consumption," will be closed, with possible citations or arrests for anyone who trespasses there.
However, the quad won't be spread with smelly fish fertilizer, as it was in 2012, the first year of CU's 4/20 crackdown.
One reader looks back fondly on the event — but not on that particular aroma.

The 4/20 gatherings were amazing, loved the experience the 2 times I got to be there before they decided to pour fish shit all over everything. Nicest people.
