ARCATA- Redwood Park was empty Sunday as all marijuana and smoking laws were strictly enforced by Arcata Police Officers.
All cars were blocked off from driving into the park and officers surrounded the area. Signs warned visitors of the strict policies before they entered.
The event would previously attract thousands into the area to partake in the unofficial event inside the park on 4-20. Over the past years Police have increased their presents. Sgt. Det. Todd Dokweiler of the Arcata Police Department said the day has become mostly a non-event.
