A reveler receives a ticket from Boulder police during the 4/20 smoke-out on the University of Colorado campus last week.

University of Colorado police issued 33 tickets — twice as many as last year — to 4/20 participants on the Norlin Quad last week, Cmdr. Tim McGraw said this morning.

McGraw said that while most of the tickets were for possession of marijuana – a petty offense with fines up to $100 – some were issued for unlawful conduct. All tickets included in that total were 4/20-related and do not include tickets issued outside of the event. 

Last year, police issued 16 tickets for marijuana possession during 4/20.

There were nine medical calls and three transports to the hospital at 4:20 p.m. Wednesday, McGraw said. There were no arrests related to 4/20 activity by CU police, he said.
