h/t Twitchy – A large public event, a celebration of Cannabis culture, was cancelled in Denver on Sunday, because of heavy snowfall. According to Twitchy, the organisers apparently don’t want to refund the cash they’ve collected, but will honour event tickets at a new date to be announced, after the snow melts.
The Denver 420 Rally leadership team announced that today’s 420 Rally in Civic Center Park will be rescheduled due to weather and circumstances beyond its control. Civic Center Park will be closed to the public today. The new concert date and additional information will be released on www.420Rally.com in the near future.

I’m sure our hearts go out to Denver’s Cannabis community.
But this tragic cancellation leaves an important unanswered question – what is the most effective way to help melt all that snow?
Will smoking more cannabis help clear the snow? My guess is yes. If 1000 pot heads drop ash all over the pristine white snow blanketing Denver, not only will smoking all that weed release urgently needed CO2, which might cause slight localised warming. The ash will lower the albedo of the snow, which should help accelerate the melting process.
On the other hand, the vast smoke cloud released by all the dodgy rollups may trigger a cooling effect, if it reaches the stratosphere.
Let us all hope Denver’s pot heads muddle through this difficult paradox, and get to attend their music event.
