BOULDER - The University of Colorado plans to close its Boulder campus on April 20 - otherwise known as 4/20.

It will be the third straight year it has closed to put a stop to an annual marijuana celebration that has drawn thousands of people.

The Boulder Daily Camera reports campus administrators hope that by closing off the campus to outsiders, it can extinguish the pot smokeout all together.
