Colorado Cannabis Calendar: Giving Thanks for Legalization

Five years ago this month, Coloradans voted to legalize recreational marijuana, paving the way for this state to offer the first official retail sales of cannabis in the country, on January 1, 2014. Since then, hundreds of stores have popped up around the state — and so have cannabis events. After a big Thanksgiving weekend, there's yet another reason to give thanks: Danksgiving, a potluck of infused and non-infused foods. Keep reading for events through November, and beyond.

Thursday, November 30
Black Tape Denver
3264 Larimer Street
According to the organizers of Danksgiving, 4/20 + 7/10 = 11/30, so it's worth it to wait a week after the real holiday, let the food digest, and indulge in another one. It's all going down at Black Tape Denver on Thursday, November 30, from 6:30 to 10 p.m. This feast will include both pot-infused and "normal" dishes, with infused dishes designated with green dishware or labels. If you bring a dish, make sure if can feed twenty to fifty people, as it will be a potluck format. Entrance (21+) is just $5 if you bring a dish; without a dish, it's $20.
