SCI--Marijuana-Teen IQ

By Susan Squibb, The Cannabist Staff

Hey Friends and welcome to April! As if you needed a reminder, 4/20 — the biggest, stoniest holiday of the year — is this month! Take your pick, as 4/20 events are lighting up the town.

The Cannabist kicks off 420 Week at The Denver Post on April 15 and Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill, George Clinton, Collie Buddz, Method Man, Redman and Wiz Khalifa are all in town and on stage somewhere that week.

Lily Tomlin’s in town for a comedy show. CU Boulder will host the 3rd Annual Cannabis Symposium. Fans can meet marijuana artist TROG in Colorado Springs. And folks will also hemp it up at the NoCo Hemp Expo in Loveland. Be sure to check out the new open mic comedy night every Saturday at Renegade Brewing Company. To boot, Puff, Pass & Paint is now offered on Thursday and Saturday evenings.

Whatever you do, grab your buds and get out there for some springtime frolick!

Find those 420-friendly events — and more than 60 others — in the listings below.
