Cannabis Calendar: Santa Sends It

Jacqueline Collins
Santa's coming to Denver early, all thanks to the Marijuana Mansion.

The cannabis-centric manor in Capitol Hill is hosting walk-throughs and photos shoots complete with holiday decor through December, but the real fun starts this Thursday, when the Marijuana Mansion and Out Front magazine team up to host Santa Slays. The inclusive Christmas party promises to start the holiday season on high note, and that's just a small slice of the pot parties, comedy shows and yoga sessions taking place in our Cannabis Calendar. Find out more below:
