High Times Host “Cannabis Cup” For First Time In The U.S. (Denver, Colorado)


The Rocky Mountain High may never come down again after this April 20th marijuana smoke-a-thon in Denver. The “420” marijuana holiday is expected to draw more than 50,000 pot enthusiasts to Denver’s Civic Center Park this Saturday, April 20, who will celebrate marijuana and its legalization for recreational use in Colorado and Washington last November.

The numbers of marijuana enthusiasts in Denver are expected to be larger than ever partially due to the passage of Amendment 64, which legalized marijuana for recreational use for adults 21 and over, and also because High Times magazine is holding its world-renown Cannabis Cup marijuana competition in Denver on 4/20 — the first time that the annual recreational pot festival, usually held in Amsterdam, has been held in the United States.
