The Bong-a-Thon is held at a secret location in Colorado every year.
Who has the fastest lungs in the West? The Bong-A-Thon sets out to discover that each year, drug laws be dammed, inviting tokers from across the country to put their smoking skills to the test in Colorado. The cannabis-smoking competition celebrated its 39th rendition at a secret location near Gunnison over the weekend, and it brought along much more than a bong race this time. Westword sent a photographer to capture the scene.
