When Colorado recently enacted the nation's first legalized marijuana system, I was curious to see how things looked on the ground. So on January 1, 2014, I took a short trip to Denver. Photos and commentary below.
A view from the plane. Weird smoke hanging over the downtown.
Another shot from the plane, just after landing. More weird smoke everywhere.
This is a mural at the airport. It's right next to a shop selling marijuana. Hey, when in Rome...
When I walked by the mural again it looked more like this.
The Denver Airport is trippy, man. Here's the pointy roof as seen during a little walk I took in this cool field. Couldn't quite get the focus. I guess you're not supposed to walk near the tarmac but how was I supposed to know? Until that guy yelled at me. I mean, chill bro. It's all good.
The roofline reminded me of pizza so I went back inside and found a slice. I must've taken 50 photos of this before I ate. Then I ordered 4 more. Have you ever really studied pizza?
Here's a photo of... oh wait, forgot to take the lens cap off.
This was on the cab ride to downtown. I forget where this was but isn't this cool looking? It's like Monet or something. But with Bob Marley's face. Do you see it?
Things got really awesome when I switched to black and white mode. I'm not sure it comes across in this photo but these people were moving super fast.
Here's...No wait. Darn. Lens cap again.
Finally made it downtown. Back to color because it's awesome. Here's a shot of a huge dome building. Sorry about the shake, my camera was being really weird. The flag reminds me of a movie I saw once. Can't remember the name. Or what it was about. Something about three flags. Three flag day or flag dream or I forget. But anyway the dome was awesome.
Then I found this fir tree and we became like best friends. I shot like mega photos of it but I think this one is the best. Because it's the most real.
But if you want the honest truth it looked more like this. It looked like a giant bud, dude! And it was glowing, no shit!
Not much to say about the rest of the trip. Can't remember much. I wandered around for another day. There's tons of good munchies in Denver.
Here's a shot from the cab back to the airport. It was pretty smokey there. Didn't really see the sky the whole trip. But it sure smelled good.
