Among the folks high on the field's possibilities: the Candy Girls, three women who started a company that cooks up goodies made with cannabis-infused oils or butters.
This medicine may be good for you, but it also tastes good. (The chocolate-covered cherries are the most popular item.)
For a slide show of these Candy Girls (who are not to be confused with the Candy Girls that post on this blog every Thursday), click here.
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.
