Coloradans have a huge task of rebuilding set out for them after floods devastated large swaths of the state, but at least weed is legal there. In the interest of boosting morale, a local paper reports, organizers are giving away free joints today in Boulder.

Medical marijuana users and "stressed-out recreational users" alike are invited to participate, so long as they're 21 and don't light up in public.


According to Rob Corry, who helped organize the event, “Boulder has been victimized by floods. We want to bring some flood relief to folks.” But the group has a political motivation, too: they're opposing a ballot initiative that would impose a statewide tax on marijuana. Today's giveaway comes on the heels of a similar event that was successfully held in Denver.

Aside from helping to replenish stashes that were swept away by the floodwaters, the organizers will also be collecting money for flood relief.
