• Weed Watch: Are You Ready for Colorado’s “BYOC” Classical Music Concert Series?

    "Classically Cannabis: The High Note Series" is a benefit for the Colorado Symphony Orchestra...and a whole lot more

    When you think of marijuana and music, Bob Marley might spring to mind. Or, if you’re adventurous, perhaps some classic Desmond Dekker.

    But how about some classical arrangements to go along with your doobie? That’s the idea over in America’s favorite hemp state, as the Colorado Symphony Orchestra has now partnered with the ganja industry for a four part “BYOC” concert series. That’s “Bring Your Own Cannabis” for those not in-the-know. The shows will benefit the CSO, and will feature a different theme each night–assuming the organizers aren’t too stoned to get everything set up.

    The first concert will take place at the Space Gallery, while the last one will be at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. That means that each night, there will be plenty of sights and sounds to take in…you know, to accompany the inevitable smell of hashish.

    Audience members are being encouraged to smoke up at each venue, though there may be a conflict of interest at Red Rocks, where it’s clearly illegal to do so. Either way, classical music has never been as hip as it will be now.

    Your turn to weigh in on the cannabis concerts: Good idea? Bad idea? Do you feel like Mary Jane is making its way into more events than Zelig? Sound off below.
