"The University of Colorado in Boulder hopes sealing off the campus will help it snuff out the popular pot smoking event called 4/20.

Last April 20 approximately 10,000 people attended the annual smoke fest.

This year, the university is making the campus off limits to everyone who is not a student or staff member.

University officials plan on taking fish fertilizer and spreading it out over the entire Norlin Quad. They say it could make the area virtually uninhabitable. It may seem like an extreme measure, but university officials say they will do whatever it takes to end the pot party.

'It’s a traffic nightmare. It’s sometimes 10,000 people here in the heart of the campus,' Ryan Huff with the CU-Boulder Police Department said.
