Did you notice that yesterday was 4/20? And that it was kind of a big deal in Denver? Twitter certainly did. There was an explosion of tweets on the topic yesterday -- and while most of them were positive, there were definitely some exceptions. We collected what struck us as the twenty most memorable, with many of them featuring photos from the Civic Center rally. Count them down below. Number 20

@littlemichael09 I don't understand your text "faded in Denver on 4/20" What's so significant about the date being 4/20? I don't get it.
