For years one of the biggest things Colorado parents were warned to fear on Halloween was tampered candy. Those warnings took an ominous edge after recreational pot was legalized in Colorado. But this year, however, despite an onslaught of warnings in 2014, Colorado officials haven’t issued a single warning about the dangers of marijuana-infused candy.

There were zero incidents of children being given tricky pot treats reported in 2014 or in 2015, but that hasn’t stopped other states from issuing a warning cry.

On Halloween, the Denver Police Department’s warnings about trick-or-treaters possibly being slipped marijuana edibles reached its peak with the graphic seen here — one that essentially suggests, against all available evidence, that pot candy could kill children. But if DPD reps hoped the #CheatTheReaper hashtag would become a thing, they must have been sorely disappointed. A Twitter search this morning showed it wasn’t used a single time that day — a total that matches the number of marijuana dosings reported in the city in the wake of the Halloween festivities.

Everything you need to make your own pumpkin pipe.

Halloween is over, but you’ve still got a pumpkin laying around. Instead of letting it rot out and turn into a gross mush you’ll nearly puke over while cleaning up our friends at the Denver Westword have come up with a much better use.
One quick and easy way to get rid of those excess pumpkins: Turn them into your newest smoking piece. Anyone with five or ten minutes to spare can make a pipe or bong out of one of the fruits. Read on for our step-by-step guide to making an eco-friendly pipe out of a pumpkin.

Last month, we shared Denver Police Department concerns about trick-or-treaters possibly being slipped marijuana edibles on Halloween. Literally hundreds of readers ripped such fears as unreasonable and reactionary. But rather than backing down, the DPD upped the ante with a video on the alleged threat, plus a Facebook campaign rolled out over the past couple of weeks. Thus far, the majority of those who’ve responded to the department on Facebook have been more upset by what they see as fear-mongering than by the prospect of kids being dosed without their knowledge.

The Denver Police Department has done a good job of scaring people into thinking there will be a rash of regular pot users willing to spend ten bucks on a candy bar so that they can secretly dose a little kid while trick-or-treating on Halloween; see a DPD video below.
In fact, Denver cops have made such a big deal of such possibilities that cops around Omaha, Nebraska, have started warning residents there to beware of people handing out Colorado-made pot candy.

According to a Denver Police Department podcast, calls have already started coming in from parents concerned that their kids will be slipped pot edibles while trick-or-treating on Halloween.
We highly doubt that. In fact, if anyone does hand out pot-laced candy to kids, we wouldn’t be surprised if it was someone from the anti-cannabis side trying to make legal cannabis look bad.

“Mitt Romney” and Lady Gaga getting high for Halloween

Like many celebrities, Lady Gaga went all out for Halloween — not that we would expect anything less from Mother Monster. The 26-year-old mega-star dressed up as weed.
Yes, you read that correctly. But not just as any old strain of marijuana, Gaga’s official title was “Princess High the Cannabis Queen.” Gaga threw a rave for her friends and fans on Halloween night after her show in Puerto Rico, and posted photos on her fan site, littlemonsters.com.
Among the party guests was a some dude in a Mitt Romney mask, smoking weed.

We all have our own reasons for loving cannabis, and one of my biggest is the way it enhances nostalgia. Cartoons, music and food from my childhood all have a little extra meaning after I smoke pot — and let’s face it: No one my age has any other reason to watch Good Burger. My love for Halloween has undoubtedly returned to peak levels thanks to the plant, leading me to geek out on slasher films, popcorn balls and pumpkin carving during and after each smoke sesh this past month.

Not only does Frankenberry ramp the ghoulish effects up a notch as you puff a joint and watch Michael Myers get back up for the tenth time, but it also takes you back to mornings before school, eating a bowl of the strawberry-marshmallow cereal — and so does the strain’s cakey, berry flavor.

Shopping for retail marijuana in Denver is like time-traveling both into the future and back to the past. You can buy products here that aren’t available anywhere else in the world, and that includes on the Internet. Unlike clothes, electronics, books and even groceries, you can’t order cannabis delivered to your door in Colorado (although legal states Nevada and Oregon allow it, our state currently bans that option). And while the consistency of infused products’ effects has greatly improved since required potency and homogeneity tests began, it’s just as hard to keep up with cannabis trends today as it was when this all began in January 2014.

Newer, stronger forms of concentrates, more refined edibles brands and innovative infusion techniques are improving at a rate that’s tough for industry insiders to track, much less the average consumer. Just when you think you’ve figured out live resin and pressed rosin, distillate and isolate show up. Think lotions, patches and balms are the only topicals out there? Think again. These days, picking out the right product can feel more like spinning a roulette wheel of pre-filled vaporizers and CBD/THC mixtures than making an educated choice. To help you catch up, we’ve picked out our favorite cannabis products for the season, choosing edibles, drinks, concentrates and accessories that go exceptionally with hoodie weather and pumpkin-patch vibes.
