University of Colorado student leaders have set a date for the symposium to “repurpose” the annual 4/20 pot smokeout on the Boulder campus.

The event will be April 2 at the University Memorial Center.

Though details aren’t finalized, the symposium will include panels on topics such as the economics of marijuana, pot entrepreneurs, medical uses, women and cannabis culture and others, said Neelah Ali, a fifth-year senior working with CU Student Government on the event.

“We’re really trying to cultivate a cannabis culture,” Ali said. “This is an upward movement, something new. The times are changing, and it is a culture that we are very much a part of living in Colorado.”
