ARCATA- The Arcata Police Department is preparing for Sunday's unofficial 4-20 event in Redwood Park. Police said there will be a large police presence and maximum enforcement of all laws on scene.
In past years, thousands have gathered at the park to take part in the counterculture celebration of marijuana. Sgt. Ron Sligh of the Arcata Police Department said the unofficial event was unsafe and became a frustration for the city.
