A haze lifting above Denver’s Civic Center Park April 20, 2012.

Yesterday, Colorado cannabis activist Miguel Lopez, the organizer of Denver’s annual 4/20 rally at Civic Center Park, released the schedule for this year’s two-day event, taking place on (duh) April 20 and 21. But in addition to a breakdown of happenings on each day, he also shared with Westword‘s Michael Roberts his often-negative thoughts about Amendment 64’s passage, as well as his views about continuing the fight for full cannabis legalization.

According to bystanders, the man pictured at right allegedly used the sign he is holding in the photo to strike a pro-marijuana protester in the head. Police refused to do anything about the incident, smilingly saying it “looked like an accident.”

A violent attack by an anti-marijuana individual on a pro-marijuana protester at a medical cannabis rally in Michigan last week was ignored and laughed off by police who saw the incident, according to eyewitnesses.

The attack, which occurred at the medical marijuana rally at the state capitol in Lansing on Wednesday, happened to medical marijuana patient/activist “J.,” according to eyewitnesses.
“He got smacked in the head (purposely) by the guy with the ‘Say No To A Pothead Society’ sign and told he ‘could now go to hell,’ ” activist Zig Zag Man wrote in a Facebook note.
“J. had his sign raised higher than the idiot and when J. put his sign down to rest (sort of heavy), the anti-pothead swung his sign and hit J. in the face and twisted his head out of his normal ‘range of motion’ with the titanium plate holding his neck to his spine (he even had his neck brace on),” Zig Zag Man wrote.
“J. got over to the cop (adrenalin rush) and said ‘I want him arrested for assault,’ and the cop smiled and said, ‘Looked like an accident to me!’ “

Graphic: The Grateful Dead World

​Something tells me quite a few Toke of the Town readers are also fans of the Grateful Dead, nudge nudge, wink wink, so you’re gonna be interested in a new video game based on the band and its music.

As reported by Jeremy M. Zoss at Joystick Divisionour Village Voice Media sister blog, the new Dead game will launch this August for online and mobile devices, in a new partnership with Asheville, North Carolina-based “Digital Experience” builders Curious Sense.
The game will reportedly be nothing like Guitar Hero or Rock Band, but will instead be more of an interactive playground than a single experience — sounds ideal for stoners, doesn’t it?
The game will be accessible via the band’s official website (, Facebook and online game portals, reports Scott Steinberg at Rolling Stone.
