Chromic Con Gave Geeks a Chance to Toke Together

Geeks love to toke, too. That was the premise behind Chromic Con, the only-in-Colorado gathering that brought together stoners, fans and geeky guests in Colorado Springs and Denver on November 22 and 23. Billed as the world's first-ever weed-friendly comic and fantasy convention, the event included a cosplay contest, exhibits by artists, and appearances by Carel Struycken (Lurch in The Addams Family and Addams Family Values) and Carlos Alazraqui (Reno 911 and Rocko's Modern Life). Pot, too. Lots of pot.
