'Trashed' field around 4/20 pot rally to be closed for weeks
The fields around Vancouver's Sunset Beach could be closed for upwards of a month following a massive 4/20 pot rally that drew tens of thousands of people – and left the area a muddy mess.
Howard Normann, Director of Parks for the City of Vancouver, said while the field was left in great shape after the 2016 event because of the dry spring, this year's soggy weather means the grassy areas hadn't dried out after days of rain.
St. Paul's Hospital downtown said a total of 25 people were brought in to its emergency department, including six people who were underage.
