A 4/20 oops on the KU campus


Someone on the University of Kansas campus appears to have missed out on the peak hour of April 20, aka 4/20, celebrated as a national holiday by pot smokers.

According to an online crime report from KU police, this incident occurred between 4:15 p.m. and 4:20 p.m. on Friday, April 20: “Someone left a jacket containing drug paraphernalia and marijuana on a KU bus.”

The crime, possession of marijuana and paraphernalia, was reported shortly after 4:30 p.m. at the Kansas Union — I presume by KU transit or someone else who found the jacket, though I’m awaiting confirmation on that from KU police. According to the crime report, the related KU police investigation is ongoing.
