MMJ stash at Auraria could be country's biggest collection of marijuana magazines

Talk about a stash! Auraria Library contains a small but growing number of Colorado MMJ periodicals in a collection that could be the first of its kind in the country. But archivist Rosemary Evetts didn't have a sudden epiphany that she ought to start storing such publications for posterity -- the first copy fell into her lap.

"The truth is that I have a really peculiar friend who is a dumpster diver. He walked in one Saturday with two big bags. I looked through it, and in among a lot of trash there was Volume One, Number One of Kush Colorado," she says. "My first thought was, 'Wow, there's real money that's going into this. You know, I grew up in the '60s and '70s, and Kush Colorado is so far from those underground publications of that time."
