- The University of Colorado at Boulder opted to close its campus. Marijuana activists sued for an injunction against the closure (and lost). Eight counties planned events as alternatives to the smoke-ins. CU-Boulder students planned a Wyclef Jean concert where the performer is barred from making any marijuana or other drug references.

Here we will curate social media conversation about the rallies in Denver, Boulder and around Colorado.
