The Associated Press is reporting that officials at the University of Colorado are considering shutting down the school's annual 4/20 celebration that draws as many as 10,000 potheads to the school each year on April 20.
 Vice Chancellor of Administration Frank Bruno says the school spends about $50,000 on security for the event which includes an ID check of every student conducted by the sheriff's department.
The school has been dealing with a budget shortfall and Regent Michael Carrigan calls the expense of the event "an outrageous waste of money".
