Colorado Replaces “420″ Mile Marker With “419.99″ To Stop Stoner Thefts

Colorado Replaces "420" Mile Marker With "419.99" To Stop Stoner Thefts

And people say stoners are lazy. After marijuana fans in Colorado — which recently legalized the drug — repeatedly kept stealing the 420 mile marker on Interstate 70, the Department of Transportation gave up and put up a 419.99 marker instead. “420,” of course,” is a number associated with pot-smoking culture, and Colorado is one of the few states with a highway long enough to need a 420 marker, so it’s not like there’s tons of these bad boys to rip off. ”Obviously people steal these signs,” said CDOT spokesperson Amy Ford. “In the past, if a sign was stolen too much, we wouldn’t replace it. This is sort of an innovative way for us to keep the sign there.” [Denver Post]
