There is nothing like seeing an amazing show at a historic venue. There is a reason bands and fans flock to First Avenue in Minneapolis. And the Greek Theatre in LA was widely recognized as one of the country’s best small outdoor venues long before Jonah Hill and Russell Brand made a movie about it.
In a recent poll by Rolling Stone Magazine, Boulder’s own Fox Theatre was voted the 4th best music venue in the nation. And with the nearby and long-standing Boulder Theater regularly bringing shows like Young the Giant, The Floozies, Macy Gray and An Evening with Kevin Smith – not to mention their weekly film series – Boulder residents seem to have won the theater lottery.
And we haven’t even mentioned Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre, voted the best amphitheatre in the nation in a 2013 Rolling Stone insider poll.
The question for many Colorado residents and tourists isn’t whether we’ll get some of the best tours in the nation, but how to responsibly combine marijuana and concerts when visiting these historic venues.
Marijuana and Concerts
Music and marijuana go together like waffles and syrup. You may feel relaxed, inspired or euphoric as you let your mind roll with the rhythm of your favorite song or story, and many recreational marijuana users enjoy getting high before seeing a concert, show or movie. But while marijuana is legal in Colorado, you are not allowed to smoke it inside concert venues (public consumption is illegal, not to mention venue-specific rules).
While you might be able to get away with smoking inside or near the venue, refusal to follow venue rules could result in your being removed from the show or denied entry. Public consumption could also land you with a fine. So if you want to experience a show while high, your best option is to smoke before you leave your home or apartment – provided you have planned safe and sober transportation.
If you are not allowed to smoke in your residence or hotel, or if you know you will want to smoke again while you are at the show, there are a few alternatives you can consider that will allow you to get high without breaking Boulder laws or venue rules.
Consider edibles if your hotel or landlord doesn’t allow smoking in or around your building. But you should be aware of whether the property owner has only banned smoking or if they prohibit the possession of all cannabis products as part of your lease/rental. Learn more about edibles and how to consume them responsibly.
Feel like you’re out of options as you search for places to legally consume marijuana? If you’re headed to the concert, consider cannabis friendly transportation and concierge services so you can have a legal, appropriate place to smoke. Instead of worrying about where or when you can smoke again, just pop out of the venue (make sure you are allowed to re-enter first!) and step into your own mobile marijuana lounge.
