Colorado ghost towns you should be haunting this summer

COVID is cramping our traveling plans. No summer vacation to Tokyo or road trip to New Orleans for the Jazz and Heritage Festival. What a downer 2020 has turned out to be.

COVID-19 is inspiring more people to drop acid

2020 is already the fever dream we never wanted so why wouldn’t we sprinkle some LSD in there while we’re at it?

At least, researchers believe this is what a lot more Americans have started doing. Why? Escapism, researchers are saying.

“LSD is used primarily to escape. And given that the world’s on fire, people...

Marijuana has shown its usefulness for treating and alleviating the symptoms of all kinds of medical ailments: cancer, chronic pain, and autism (just to name a few). Now scientists have come out with a study showing that cannabis is useful when treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as well.

Changes, they are a comin’ (to the Colorado weed industry in 2020)

Not everything in 2020 is a dumpster fire that refuses to be snuffed out. There are some pretty positive weed-related headlines coming down the pipe this year for stoners, marijuana industry workers, hemp farmers, and those looking forward to more justice and equity in the business.

Hopefully, these changes made halfway...

This is a brewery — it speaks for the trees: CO brewery and grower saving the planet by growing weed

What’s the best way to save the planet? By growing weed and making beer, of course! OK, OK. That’s selfishly oversimplifying it a bit, but, according to Westword, one Denver brewery and a grower are working together to do just that.

Confused? Let’s get into it. Denver Beer Co. and The Clinic, a company with dispensaries...

The Colo. and N.M. BIPOC breweries making beer you should be sippin’ on this summer

It’s far past due that we pay attention to and patronize Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) owned goods and businesses.

Beer, in particular, is a DGO Mag staple and we feel it necessary to remind y’all of all the delicious brews we have here in the Southwest that just happen to be owned and made by...

For real or fake: Authenticity over Forrest Fenn treasure discovery continues

After an infamous treasure chest was allegedly found in June, the very important controversy over whether the Forrest Fenn treasure was actually discovered is continuing to unfold after photos of the cache were released.

X marks the spot: Forrest Fenn treasure found in the Rocky Mountains

After at least five deaths, hundreds of thousands of hours of manpower, and a few lives ruined, the Forrest Fenn treasure chest was finally found in the Rocky Mountains.

Ghost sightings have increased now that everyone’s stuck at home

Just because people are social distancing doesn’t mean visitors from the other side got the message nor necessarily care.

In fact, there seems to be an uptick in reported paranormal sightings. The New York Times reported on stories from across the country of people relaying their increased experiences with the...

What to expect for Great American Beer Fest 2020 during COVID-19

We would be lying to you if we said the Great American Beer Festival wasn’t our favorite time of year, so we won’t say that. What we will say is that while we understand the plight of the nation’s largest craft beer festival, we are completely bummed about the (well-warranted) redirection of the 2020 GABF. Thanks, COVID-19,...

Parts of Colorado could soon see an expansion of marijuana hospitality legislation

While most things have stalled out due to COVID-19, Denver is considering taking a step toward expanding its marijuana hospitality industry to support things like marijuana lounges and other in-person cannabis experiences.
