Photos: It's always 4:20 in Denver, at least while Union Station is under construction

Big photos below.
The other week, I was dropping off my pop at the Oxford Hotel downtown around 2 p.m. when I noticed that the clock was wrong at Union Station.

Or, better, the clock was right on at Union Station.

Yup. 4:20. At 2 p.m. in the afternoon. I'm not downtown much these days (I'm stuck changing diapers), so I'm not sure how long it's been like that. But I did go back the next day and snap another picture around 6 in the evening, and the clock was still at 4:20.

We haven't reached out to the construction company yet (renovations closed the facility in November 2012 and were supposed to last about a year and a half), mostly because we think it's hysterical and want to see how long it stays up.

Here's the first photo....

...and a shot from the next day:

If anyone else has any information on how long it's been up or even possibly know the person who made it happen, drop us a note in the comments or shoot us an e-mail at marijuana@westword.com.

More from our Marijuana archive: "Medical marijuana stores impact neighborhoods in Denver no more than coffee shops, study says."

Of course it's just a coincidence that construction started (and stopped the clock) at the same time we passed A64. Right?

This is awesome. I wonder if the clock stopped on its own at 420 or if someone did it.

I'm stunned that hack Dan Caplis isn't protesting this.


Or maybe he is and nobody cares.  How many people listen to 710 AM.

A lot of readers have liked the post since then, too -- but your number definitely stands out. Thanks, Jerilyn.

 @DonkeyHotay   I know an 8 year old who acts more like an adult than you. You are embarassing yourself, or would, if you could see what a spoiled little BRAT you look like when you post.
