What a time to be alive and in the legal cannabis industry!
2017 started on a high note with the Hollyweed sign’s transformation and ended on an even higher note as CNN inhaled all the good stuff offered in our home city of Denver, Colorado. CNN Host Randi Kaye took in a “Puff, Pass Paint” party in Denver and the entire telecast’s subtitle was “Rocky Mountain High.”
From FOX News to TMZ, every media outlet covered this major occasion–CNN championing cannabis on live, national TV–and either celebrated or crucified CNN for crossing this line of media coverage. The entire segment was in good fun, and highlighted our community’s magical vibe.
Anderson Cooper noted that “I just want to point out that this is all legal in Colorado” while Kaye wondered out loud “I’m trying to remember where we are. Where am I?”
As cannabis continues to normalize, coverage like this shall too normalize.
Perhaps unintentional, nonetheless, we thank CNN for the New Year “shout out”!
