Miss out on Thanksgiving? Well, folks in the cannabis scene have concocted their own version of the holiday: Danksgiving. This year, Danksgiving will be hosted by the Cannabis Connoisseur Coalition, which is pitting Colorado's best cannabis growers, extractors and caregivers against each other in a battle of buds.
But that's not the only holiday fun going on this week. Learn more about Danksgiving, an upcoming holiday bazaar and more fun pot events in our Cannabis Calendar below.
Monday, November 30

Making Your Own Pipe
