The weekend's snow shut down Denver's annual 420 marijuana rally, but organizers are now hoping to pull together an extravaganza at one of the city's premier entertainment venues.

"I'm not ruling out Sports Authority, I think it is a possibility," said Rob Corry, attorney for the Denver 420 rally.

Artists scheduled to appear at the postponed Saturday rally included Lil Wayne, and Wiz Khalifa.

"These performers are high-level, plus you have the cultural significance of Denver and the 420 rally, this is ground zero for ending marijuana prohibition."
