DENVER -- Lawyers for the organizers of the annual 4/20 rally at Civic Center Park in Denver filed an appeal Friday to the city's decision to ban the rally for three years.

The city announced the ban and levied a nearly $12,000 fine against organizers after this year's event left the downtown Denver Park trashed.

Organizers say this won't stop them from holding the event, and they stand by their claim that the park was completely clean in the time allotted for them to do so.

An attorney for the group clams the city's action was unconstitutional. Miguel Lopez, one of the organizers of the 4/20 Rally, said last month he would take the matter to court, if necessary.
