Weed Weddings Are All The Rage In Colorado

Weed Weddings Are All The Rage In Colorado

Forget an open bar, the coolest way to impress your wedding guests is to pass them a blunt and offer up a plate of THC-laced brownies. That’s right, man, weed weddings — “weedings,” obvs — are the hot new nuptial trend in, where else, Colorado. According to an article in The New York Times — which came out in favor of legalization in an op-ed this weekend — weed weddings involve everything from marijuana-laced baked goods, to pot buds used in boutonnieres and bouquets, to full on smoke dens for guests to chill out in. Part of the appeal is that marijuana typically makes people feel more loving, the perfect vibe for the joining of two souls, ya dig? Keep reading »

For the first time since Colorado legalized weed for recreational use, a coroner has listed “marijuana intoxication” as a contributor to a death.

Colorado Girl Scouts Put The Kibosh On Selling Cookies Outside Of Pot Shops

Last week, clever California Girl Scout made bank after she set up shop outside of a marijuana dispensary in San Francisco. The enterprising 13-year-old sold 117 boxes in two hours, both to neighbors and customers of the cannabis club. Tragically, Girl Scouts in Colorado won’t have a similar circumstance to exploit — even though their state recently legalized marijuana — because they want kiddies to stay away from the pot clubs. In a statement on their Facebook page, the Girl Scouts of Colorado warned scouts that cookie sales are not permitted outside “adult establishments,” which includes pot dispensaries. Strip clubs, bars, liquor stores and casinos as also verboten. “We recognize these are legitimate businesses, but we don’t feel they are an appropriate place for girls to be selling cookies in Colorado,” they wrote. [I wonder if they know that there is apparently a strain of marijuana named after their delectable treats? — Amelia] Keep reading »

And people say stoners are lazy. After marijuana fans in Colorado — which recently legalized the drug — repeatedly kept stealing the 420 mile marker on Interstate 70, the Department of Transportation gave up and put up a 419.99 marker instead. “420,” of course,” is a number associated with pot-smoking culture, and Colorado is one of the few states with a highway long enough to need a 420 marker, so it’s not like there’s tons of these bad boys to rip off. ”Obviously people steal these signs,” said CDOT spokesperson Amy Ford. “In the past, if a sign was stolen too much, we wouldn’t replace it. This is sort of an innovative way for us to keep the sign there.” [Denver Post]
