Drug Warriors have long implied that marijuana causes violent behavior -- which explains why recent incidents such as the tragic killing of Kristine Kirk, who was shot to death by her husband after he'd consumed a marijuana edible, have been major talking points for opponents of pot legalization.

But now, new research offers evidence countering such theories. The study, on view below in its entirety, found that weed-smoking couples are less apt to engage in domestic violence.

At Friday's Rocky Mountain Showdown, I was decked out in CU attire, since my daughters are students there. And when passing through the Rams' section of the parking lot, I tended to get one of two reactions. The first was: "Fuck you! Fuck CU!" And the second was "FUCK YOU! FUCK CU!"

Astonishingly, most CSU boosters maintained this level of passion throughout the game, during which CU blew a 17-7 third quarter lead by giving up 24 unanswered points to lose 31-17. The contrast between them and CU fans was illustrated by a series of Jumbotron juxtapositions. Shot of CSU section: Everyone going crazy! Shot of CU section: Bro looking at his phone.

Jake Shane captures some of these differences in photos on view below. Check them out here -- and click to see the complete CSU and CU Face Off at the 2014 Rocky Mountain Showdown slide show.

It was a bizarre scene whose timing couldn't have been worse. Toward the end of the Labor Day holiday weekend, with thousands of concert-goers streaming into the area in order to catch a Red Rocks show headlined by OneRepublic, law enforcers from the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office shut down C-470 near the Bowles intersection on a report of armed shooters with long guns. In the end, no such weapons were found and no shots reportedly fired, but the JCSO confirms that two people were taken into custody -- and a report maintains that a third arrest at nearby Tipsy's Liquor World may be connected. Additional photos, a video, an interactive graphic and more below.
