Though she has put her Twirling Hippy Confections business to the side (for now), Jessica LeRoux hasn't stepped out of the cannabis arena. Always one to speak her mind (often with a string of well-placed curse words), LeRoux has become a fixture at the State Capitol and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment over the past year — live-blogging from committee meetings about the goings-on of politicians and state officials trying to force more regulations on medical marijuana patients and caregivers. With more meetings than ever to attend, LeRoux has blown through a car transmission just trying to keep up — but she's not giving up. Somehow, she still manages to keep the community informed through daily Facebook updates and e-mail chains. A friend of the late Ken Gorman, LeRoux lives up to the spirit of that famous Colorado pot activist.
