DENVER — Denver Parks and Recreation has given the official go-ahead to organizers of this year's 4/20 marijuana celebration.

Parks spokesman Jeff Green tells The Denver Post (http://bit.ly/1hx1ih0 ) the department issued a festival permit to use Civic Center Park on April 19-20. The festival is expected to draw tens of thousands of people.

Organizers have agreed to post rules at the festival outlining that public consumption of marijuana is illegal. Denver police say they will focus on ensuring safety rather than issuing mass-citations for public consumption.
