The many bongs, er, "medical smoking devices" of the High Times Cannabis Cup

While it's of course true that marijuana is a medical drug, and the implements of smoking it are as such medical devices and should only be used as such (cough, cough, in multiple senses of that joke), it's unlikely that you're going to see a blood-pressure pump or a forceps as pretty as any of the intricate glass-work on display at the 2011 High Times Cannabis Cup last night, an event Westword pot critic Will Breathes likened to "the largest hot box I have ever been a part of" -- in a strictly medical sense, of course. We sent photographer Kate Levy out to check out the, uh, merchandise, and she brings back these photos of some truly impressive "medical smoking devices." See the full slide-show here!

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
