As part of our Caregivers' Cup coverage, we shared bong porn: photos of work by glass master Wes Richards, who was creating a five-foot-tall, Colorado-themed bong to serve as a traveling trophy for winner of the Cup's people's choice prize. Well, the cup, which will be awarded to Matt H. for his Island Sweet Skunk strain at the upcoming KushConII, is finally finished, and we've got the first photo of this massive piece of smoke-worthy art. Check it out below: More from our Marijuana archive: "Medical marijuana: Caregivers' Cup preview, plus a look at that controversial (and sexy) flier."
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.
