Denver's cannabis party is building momentum as we get closer to every pothead's favorite month: April. That doesn't mean March is chopped liver, though. With talks on hemp's nutritional value and a seminar on how minorities can advance in the legal cannabis industry, there are plenty of important discussions this week. And after you work hard, play harder at the Bug Theatre, which is offering its comic rendition of Reefer Madness: The Musical, or enjoy some drinks and yuk it up at CanopyBoulder's networking party.
