As the capital of Colorado, a state leading the way on marijuana law reform, Denver was bound to be an epicenter of weed-centric activity on 4/20. And, indeed, the Mile High City lived up to its name, hosting a series of events ranging from the Cannabis Cup to rallies to concerts. Photographer Chip Kalback was there to document the festivities.
