Colorado NORML hosts comedy night, raises $4500 for the cause

Activism- Colorado

Last Wednesday, Colorado NORML held an event at ComedyWorks, a popular comedy club in downtown Denver. Headlining the night was popular cannabis comedian, Hippieman. Rachel K. Gillette, Executive Director of Colorado NORML, reports by email that there around 300 people came out and the group raised over $4,500.

“The Comedy Event was great.” Gillette said. “The comedians were absolutely hilarious.” With cannabis and cannabis users being the butt of many good-natured, often self-directed jokes, Hippieman and other comedians had the crowd laughing all night and people walked away with some fun t-shirts and a couple of vaporizers as door prizes.

The organization’s next event will be a concert at the Fillmore Auditorium on Thursday, April 17. The headliners of the show have yet to be announced, but Gillette promises, “It will be BIG!”
