Photos: Jenny Kush, cannabis-scene star, killed in wrong-way crash on I-25

Photos, video below.
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 (full details below), the woman charged with causing her death -- Rebecca Maez, 27 -- remains in custody on suspicion of vehicular homicide and driving under the influence.

Kush was both an outspoken cannabis-reform advocate and the host of Sexpot Radio, which aired live twice weekly on

The shows were captured on video -- there are dozens of them available at the first link above -- and are true to the program's name; they feature sexual advice from a distinctively weed-friendly perspective. In the ones we sampled, Kush comes across as bright, full of life and not self-conscious in the slightest about celebrating what she clearly saw as two of the most joyous experiences anyone can have.

The same tone emanates from her still-online Facebook page, which features a slew of memorable photos. Here's one example....
