San Francisco residents and officials are bracing for tens of thousands of people to flock to Golden Gate Park on Thursday and light up at a massive annual pot party. - From NBC Bay Area
Board President London Breed made it clear at a news conference on Wednesday that the 4/20 pot party is not sponsored by the city.
However, over the years, cleaning up the garbage left behind from the event has been problematic so city officials are teaming up with a private sponsor to help pay for additional resources.
To keep the event more secure, a higher-than-average number of police officers and medical personnel will be stationed in the area.
Also, only adults will be allowed into the park, which will feature a gated perimeter and preapproved food stalls.
Officials will also install portable trash bins and bathrooms across the venue.
