There's nothing worse for a pot-smoking music fan than to find your concert joints crumbled into a broken mess at the bottom of your favorite hiding spot. All that work rolling them beforehand, stashing them in your hat and making it through security is gone, and you've got to spend the rest of your show looking for someone with a pipe or extra papers. To combat this, we've put our joints in cigarette packs, socks, liners of coolers, medicine boxes from New Guinea, and even our wives'/girlfriends' bras.
These are all problems of the past now, friends. We (by that I mean me) here at Mile Highs and Lows have the solution.
In an effort to end this senseless joint mutilation, we had 1,000 Doob Tubes custom-ordered to hand out to you, my fellow show smokers. No more will your Zig Zags zig and zag or your blunts survive blunt trauma. The little cases are waterproof, too -- great for protecting against the drunk asshole spilling half his beer on you while dancing. Swing by the Westword booth in the festival area this Saturday at the 17th Annual Westword Music Showcase and grab one for free.
Spliff not included.
Westword's annual celebration of musical awesomeness, Music Showcase, goes down this Saturday in venues all over the Golden Triangle. Tickets are still available here. William Breathes is the pen name for our medical marijuana dispensary critic. You can read his weekly dispensary and cannabis reviews here.
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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
