Update: Snoop D-O-double-G has now weighed in, as has the Spitta, although his shout out is more subtle.

Holy shit! Amendment 64 has passed. Hands up if you ever thought you'd live to see this day: Pot is now legal in Colorado. In case you've been somehow sequestered all night, the results are in, and let's just say our fine city's nickname, the Mile High City, has taken on a whole new meaning. Of course, as one astute observer on Twitter has pointed out, the same can also now be said about the name of our fine basketball team.

While we're still waiting for the West Coast homies (Snoop Dogg and Cypress Hill B-Real is now present and accounted for), East Coast homies (Wiz Khalifa) and the Down South homies (Curren$y, Willie Nelson) to officially weigh in (they're probably all smoking right now), Lady Gaga has already offered props on Twitter (although she's a bit more formal, calling it cannabis), Big Boi has proclaimed the Centennial State as the "New Amsterdam," and Kevin Smith has informed us that we'll be seeing a lot more of him. Keep reading to see a sample of the reactions from the Twitterverse from folks like Just Blaze, Chuck Inglish from the Cool Kids, Twiztid and more (spoiler alert: everybody wants to visit and/or move here) -- oh, and bump these tunes when you spark up to celebrate.

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.
