Denver police issue 18 marijuana-related tickets at Saturday's 420 Rally
Denver Police issued 18 citations for marijuana consumption Saturday at the rescheduled 420 Rally in Civic Center park, said Doug Schepman, a police spokesperson.
That's significantly less than the 60 citations handed out on April 20, when thousands gathered in Civic Center to celebrate the holiday devoted to smoking marijuana.
