UPDATE: CJOB does a quick video tour of the 4/20 protest.
Although the Winnipeg police acknowledge that some of the people gathered for the 4/20 protest may be in possession of marijuana, they don't have any plans to back up the paddy wagon.
Police constable Natalie Aitken says so far, it as been a peaceful event.
Though the crowd has grown since CJOB's first look at the protest this morning, it is still well shy of the 10-thousand people that security was concerned would show up.
Whatever number of protesters end up at the Legislature, Aitken says police are going to be ready.
An estimate of the crowd this afternoon was not available from police but it is unlikely there were more than 2000 present.
The annual protest attracts those who argue that marijuana should be legalized, or at least decriminalized. Some suggest that it isn't as dangerous as some things that are legal.
Aitken also said that police will be monitoring vehicle traffic away from the event for impaired drivers.
