The Colorado-made hemp flag that flew over the Capitol in Washington on the Fourth of July has made its way back to the Centennial State. And today — which is known as Colorado Day, in commemoration of the day on which the state officially joined the union in 1876 — the hemp flag flew at the Colorado Capitol.
The goal, says hemp advocate Mike Bowman, is to have the flag travel around the United States and fly at the capitol buildings of every state that wants it. “Maybe it’ll end up at the Smithsonian,” he says. Denver Westword has the rest.
