The Eagle County Sheriff’s Office in collaboration with the Eagle Valley High School’s DADD (Devils Against Drinking and Drugs) Club is hosting its inaugural 420 Drug Free Rally on Friday at the Field House in Edwards.
This event will be celebrated on a local level with a free community barbecue and open pick-up games such as soccer, basketball, volleyball and rock climbing, along with a giant bonfire with s’mores and an outdoor movie. This event will begin at 4:20 p.m. with a National Guard helicopter landing.
Gee, I wonder how that went (and I really want to know what movie they showed).
If this continues as an annual tradition, I foresee many awkward moments in the future: “Hey, you want to join me at a 420 rally?” “Sure!” …
On the other hand, I think that other 420 rallies could learn from this one in that a giant bonfire with s’mores and an outdoor movie sound like a really good idea (skip the helicopter, though).
I found this particularly odd:
Most Coloradans believe 420 sends out the wrong message to our youth by glorifying drug abuse. Others view this as insensitive and a dishonor of the Columbine High School tragedy, which also occurred on April 20.
Why, of course. How dare people do anything else on the day that a tragedy once occurred. People who have birthdays on April 20 must cease enjoying them, and must certainly not have parties. Stop being so insensitive.
