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

The national media continues to be fascinated by Colorado cannabis, Stephen Colbert included. Last night, less than two months after his amusing tribute to the marijuana Super Bowl, he devoted the lion's share of his program to the subject via two segments: one exploring the scene in what he dubs "Potsylvania," the other digging into the offerings of ganjapreneurs who realize that Denver is both America's number one vacation spot and the place where photos most require software to remove red eyes. Check out both hilarious clips below.
