Lopez says the decision to reschedule is a blessing in disguise because visitors, some of whom paid more than $150 to get close to headlining performers Wiz Khalifa and Lil Wayne, can return on a nicer day for a “bigger and better show.”

But some people who traveled from out of state don’t see it that way.

“We had to take off from work, and then it was a four-hour flight to get here,” said Breanna Duffee, from Gainesville, Ga. “I packed my parka and snowboots. I was pumped.”

The featured musicians are still set to perform when the rally is rescheduled, Lopez said.

He was adamant the Saturday delay wouldn’t hurt turnout, noting that if people who made the trip can’t honor their tickets, that’s another factor that’s “beyond our control.”

The Colorado Department of Transportation postponed an associated event designed to educate marijuana users about the dangers of driving high.

The “Slow-Speed Chase” has been rescheduled for April 20, when stoners nationwide will celebrate marijuana.
