Colorado Cannabis Time Capsule, 1937: "A Growing Social Menace"

In doing research for our feature on the history of cannabis in Colorado, we came across some amazing old news stories from local papers about marijuana arrests and more. We'll share the most memorable of them in our quasi-regular feature, Colorado Cannabis Time Capsule.

Today's item, from August 8, 1937: "Marijuana in Denver? Sure, Plenty of the Stuff."
