Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Believe it or not, drugs are fairly common at most concerts by Phish, whose phans have been known to follow them around the country, Grateful Dead-style. And according to police in Howard County, Maryland, a couple of Coloradans were doing their best to fill the phaithful's needs this past weekend -- at least until the boys in blue harshed their vibe. During Saturday's Phish concert at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, 31 people were busted on drug-sales charges, including Jeffrey S. Tatum and Robert Kennamer Duncan, both of Fort Collins, who were reportedly peddling their wares from a white recreational vehicles sporting Colorado plates.

Presumably ones with mountains. High mountains.
