Marijuana news from contributing authors and staff writers on the latest in marijuana and medical marijuana
Ever since 4/20, the world has been watching for the new and exotic schedule of cannabis events on the Colorado landscape. Open to tourists, but fun for the whole cannabis family, this summer welcomes both annual and inaugural gatherings.
COLORADO SYMPHONY PRESENTS
THE HIGH NOTE SERIES
JULY 18, AUG 15, SEPT 13
The Colorado Symphony made a national splash when they announced “Classically Cannabis” concerts for the next few months. There’s no better way to hear live classical music, and these events are even paired with fine food (gourmet munchies). The good news, if you missed the first, is that there are three soirees and a mega-concert scheduled. The challenge is getting a ticket; admission is by invitation-only for the upcoming fund-raisers to be held at the Space Gallery on Santa Fe (CannaCadets will receive invites! Sign up Today!). The big show is coming up September 13th at Red Rocks and open to the general public.

BONGATHON | AUGUST 1-2
There is not another event more aptly named than the Bongathon, which is exactly what it sounds like. Long a tradition, and now a camping mini-music festival deep in the mountains, the games are back again over the August 2nd weekend. Entrants may compete in the Open (that means show up and BYOB - bring your own bong/bud), or may pay to have everything provided. There’s fastest gram, team competition to simultaneously smoke an ounce through the same hookah, and relays. And for the thrill-seekers, try the “Dab Out,” roughly 0.1 gram of wax smoked every minute until you can’t go any further. Why not? It’s the summer.

THE DENVER COUNTY FAIR
POT PAVILION | AUG 1-3
The Denver County Fair folks decided to be “in with the new,” when they expanded their blue ribbon competitions to include local cannabis this year. Categories include best plant, largest bud, best brownies, and best homemade bong. Of course, much of the actual judging will be done off-site, as cannabis won’t be allowed at the “Pot Pavilion.” Some may question the reinforcement of stereotypes with competitions such as “Speed Rolling” and “Doritos Eating Contest” but all is done in the name of good fun, and is likely to focus out-of-towner attention to the recreational aspects of cannabis. “Grateful Dead Karaoke?” That could go on for hours.
