    DENVER - APRIL 20: A man smokes a joint at a pro-marijuana "4/20" celebration in front of the state capitol building April 20, 2010 in Denver, Colorado. April 20th has become a de facto holiday for marijuana advocates, with large gatherings and 'smoke outs' in many parts of the United States. Colorado, one of 14 states to allow use of medical marijuana, has experienced an explosion in marijuana dispensaries, trade shows and related businesses in the last year as marijuana use has become more mainstream.

    Students at UC Berkeley will host a debate Wednesday night on Proposition 19, the California ballot measure that would legalize and tax marijuana for recreational use for adults.

    The debate is open to the public and admission is free. It's being held at Evans Hall on the Cal campus starting at 7 p.m. Check out their Facebook page for more details.
