Colorado cannabis activist killed in one-way crash by allegedly drunk driver


Jenny Kush.

The Denver Police Department has not officially released the name of the woman killed in a wrong-way crash on Interstate 25 over the weekend — but she’s been identified by her friends and loved ones as Jenny Kush, a colorful, outspoken and much adored member of the local cannabis community. As those close to Kush make plans to remember her at an event tomorrow night in Denver, the woman charged with causing her death — Rebecca Maez, 27 — remains in custody on suspicion of vehicular homicide and driving under the influence.
Jenny was a much-loved person and someone we were proud to call a friend here at Toke of the Town. Our heart goes out to her family and those close to her. For more, check out Denver Westword‘s photo tribute.
