The CDPHE's "Good to Know" campaign, aimed at educated Colorado's adult residents and visitors about safe and responsible marijuana use, will be unveiled at a noon press conference today at the CDPHE Operations Center, 4300 Cherry Creek Drive South, Denver.

Grab a few friends and learn how to paint in a cannabis-friendly environment every Saturday this month with local artist Heidi Keyes during one of her Puff, Pass & Paintclasses. Intimate group sessions are $50 per person in her downtown studio, and private lessons are available upon request. Participants must be 21-and-older, and although cannabis consumption (bring your own) is encouraged, it's not required. Click here for more information.

The 2015 Cannabis Business Conference has been scheduled from Saturday, January 17, through Monday, January 19, 2015, at the Colorado Convention Center, 700 14th Street. There will be speakers, presentations, panel discussions and more. Details about the conference can be accessed by clicking here. Have an event you want to share? E-mail marijuana@westword.com.

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.
