4/20 at CU-Boulder: Rob Corry explains why he won't challenge campus closure

Last month, after CU-Boulder announced that it would be closing campus on 4/20 for the second consecutive year, marijuana attorney Rob Corry, who unsuccessfully challenged last year's shutdown, said he was exploring the possibility of seeking a permit for a 4/20 event at CU this year as an alternative to filing another request for a temporary injunction.

Now, however, Corry says the permit plan is off the table, as is another trip to court -- and he encourages CU students to attend the 4/20 celebration in Denver.

After CU made its latest closure plan public, Corry told us he'd had discussions with the university's counsel, "and his idea was applying for a permit through the normal process" on behalf of his clients -- the plaintiffs in his legal attempt to keep the campus open to visitors in 2012.

Following this procedure brought its share of complications, Corry conceded: "To get a permit, you have to have a leader, supply logistical items like Porta-Potties, cleanup, insurance. So we're looking into whether that's feasible. If we apply for a permit and convince CU we can deal with all the externalities of it, and if someone steps up, maybe CU will fold."

That was unlikely from the beginning. In a March interview, CU-Boulder spokesman Bronson Hilliard (disclosure: a longtime friend of yours truly) stressed that the university would only to be open to visitors who could prove they had official business on campus -- and he specifically noted that smoking marijuana in public was unlawful under both federal law and Amendment 64, which allows adults 21 and over in Colorado to use and possess small amounts of cannabis.

The fact that April 20 is on a Saturday this year shouldn't be a consideration, Hilliard added, because a great deal of activity takes place at the school on weekends, and it would be disrupted by thousands of puffing revelers.

Corry saw this assertion as suspect and suggested that the weekend timing might offer a new rationale for taking CU back to court should the permitting approach fall through. Hilliard rejected that supposition and expressed confidence the university would prevail again should Corry seek another injunction.

Now, such a fight won't take place -- at least not involving Corry. "Obviously, any person can file an application" for an event, he says. "They're available online. But as far as my clients and my involvement, we've decided it's not worth it. We think it's likely CU would deny any application anyway, and then we'd be back to the same analysis from last year" -- seen in a document on view below.

Besides, Corry goes on, "the event was always very short -- basically a one-hour event that started around four and ended around five. It didn't lend itself to a formal, permitted, sponsored event like the Denver 4/20 rally" at Civic Center Park, "which does very well with that."

They can come spend all their money down in Denver on 4/20! We don't mind.

4/20 will be rocking this year.

To add to the excitement.  Cannabis Energy Drink will be having a booth at the rally. 

Cannabis Energy Drink (CED) is starting to appear on shelves of liquor stores, c-stores, gas stations, bar and clubs through out the states of CO. CED DOES NOT contain THC, rather Hemp Seed Oil Extract, which is a natural flavor. So what does this mean? CED can be consumed by anyone that wants to drink an energy drink. CED is competing against main stream brands such as; RedBull, Monster, Full Throttle etc.. However, what CED has going for it, is a bold green can with the words "Cannabis Energy Drink", and its sweet taste. Plus, no after taste like other brands. 


Just how HOT is CED? For example; a c-store in Yuma, CO cannot keep CED on the shelves! As soon as they post on their Facebook page that they have CED in stock, they sell out within hours. Businesses in Summit Co. sell out of their stock weekly. Metro Denver businesses carrying CED are selling out weekly.  If your favorite liquor store or bar is not carrying CED then ask them to get some in. A business doesn't carry CED, a competitor may, which leaves a business missing out on a golden opportunity.

CED is a product of Austria and is the only energy drink containing a natural flavor. CED is distributed in CO by Denver based CWW/JD Distribution. Since the beginning of January, over 7,700 cases have been sold to over 620(+) businesses. 

You can buy your own case of CED by calling 303-955-6452. price is $54.00 for 24 8.4oz cans.  CED comes in regular and light flavors.  Tastes like RedBull with the after taste.

Doesn't matter, we legalized it. And screw CU admins if they don't want to be associated with it. It was kinda like when I was at ASU and the administration tried to dispel the notion of it being a party school and porn star training ground. Like, good luck!

Just combine 4/20 with St. Patrick's day and it can become the universal get wasted in public day.  It's already accepted in our culture and has the green color scheme that works.

@Charlie Whiskey  "Doesn't matter, we legalized it."

Another drooling bong-sucker who didn't read, much less comprehend what A64 proposed.

@hansel I like it.  I wouldn't want to be traveling on any roads that day, though.

@DonkeyHotay ...or he could clarify later, which happens quite frequently. But you are too much of a chickenshit to take it up with him, you prefer to hide behind your internet connection and whine and cry and troll at people who weren't involved. Typical whiny pussy behavior.

@stuka1 ... if the idiot intended outdoor cultivation, he could have clearly indicated that in A64.

The he and lyin' Brian Vicente FAILED to do so is their legal error and omission -- further evidence of their Professional Incompetence.

You are the one claiming he didn't intend outdoor growing. You are too chickenshit to call him on the phone and find out for yourself, just like you hide behind your internet connection like the chickenshit pussy you are.

@stuka1 ... why would I want to call a convicted criminal sex offender?

If you want to have perverted phone sex with Rob, then go for it.

In the meantime your gutless empty threats of violence prove you to be the sniveling shitsucking punk that you are.

 I didn't say anything about A64. Your abject reading comprehension problem comes up again. 

Why do you hate legalizing cannabis?

@stuka1

A64 didn't legalize marijuana, not even close.

But you already knew that.
