  • Just think if undercover cops patrolled Lolla for weed(and other vilations )how much $ we would make during the concerts time span.

  • M F

    Nothing because it costs more to prosecute than it pays to ticket people for petty crimes.

  • Bigchibro…imagine how much money the state and city would make if "weed" was legal. It is only a matter of time and would be a huge source of revenue for our struggling state. It will be interesting to see how things are going in Colorado. I say go to Lollapalooza and smoke a big joint for me!
