DENVER — The Colorado Department of Transportation decided to change a mile marker sign in rural eastern Colorado because thieves kept stealing it.

The sign read 420 — a common symbol for marijuana enthusiasts.

It was replaced with a sign that reads 419.99.

CDOT spokeswoman Amy Ford said the sign was replaced within the last year.  She wasn’t sure how many times it had been stolen.
