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

After Colorado voters approved 2012's Amendment 64, which legalized limited recreational marijuana sales, comedians nationwide began making pot jokes about the state.

And they haven't stopped.

As evidence, we offer gags accessible at TeamCoco.com, the official website of Conan O'Brien.

The site's joke archive is searchable, and when we typed in either "Colorado" or "Denver," we were hit with a slew of one-liners — and while some of them were about different topics (the Broncos' suckage in the 2014 Super Bowl, for instance), the majority were sticky-icky.

Does the material qualify as comedy of a high order? Judge for yourself. Here are sixteen examples, arranged in chronological order.
