Smoke Weed With The Colorado Symphony This Summer

Within the past week, the Colorado Symphony Orchestra has had the unusual distinction of being covered by such diverse outlets as NPR, Rolling Stone, High Times, GanjaNews.org -- and yes, Soundcheck. The reason? The orchestra announced that this summer, it’s planning three marijuana-themed events called “Classically Cannabis: The High Note Series.” We talk with Colorado Symphony Orchestra CEO Jerome Kern, who tells us, "We will do anything to gain support and audience for this organization, so long as it's legal."
