OK, so there has been somewhat more weed smoked in the vicinity of Red Rocks this season. Not inside, mind you. That would still be illegal and no one's breaking that law -- never have.

But the parking lot is a different story. And we have seen some impressive displays of plant life this season. All that was amateur hour, which we learned over the weekend when Umphrey's McGee came to town. Let it be known that fans of that band take their pot very seriously. The pièce de résistance (sorry, sorry) was certainly this here pipe, which seems like it would be a challenge to even hold up, especially after taking a hit of the massive fistful of drugs within. Here's another view:

LOOK AT THAT FREAKING THING
Good work, fine citizens of the first state to legalize for recreational use. You can recreate like true professionals.

The activities in the Red Rocks environs did not stop at preposterous weed consumption. There was also juggling, costumes and what we have to assume was one very confused Juggalo. Eric Gruneisen was there to capture the highlights.

Good point, but I was interested in this post to begin with. Therefore you wasting your time trying to explain how I wasted my time about you posting about waste of time while you were wasting time is highly irrelevant.

And then people like you come and waste THEIR time posting about other people wasting their time STILL, and now I'm wasting MY TIME posting about all the time being wasted by people talking about other people wasting time.

There was plenty of really stank MJ consumption taking place inside Red Rocks on July 4th. Common people, if you are going to smoke in public, get something that smells sweet....not that stank weed!

This still doesn't make up for the fact that Umphrey's McGee sucks.
