Colorado marijuana grower plans to send two people to MLB All-Star Game, but they’ll need to find the Gold Tickets first.
Veritas Fine Cannabis plays Willy Wonka for the next two weeks, selling a commemorative can that includes three 1 gram seals, a baseball rally towel and, if you’re really lucky, two tickets to the Midsummer Classic on Tuesday July 13 at Coors Field.
More than forty dispensaries sell the cans, including Colorado Harvest Company, Cookies, Medicine Man, Native Roots, and Wolfpac, among others. The varieties featured are Sour Diesel, Super Sour Lemon, Garlic Breath, Ice Cream Cake, Apple Beignet, Slurricane and Papaya Cake, according to Jon Spadafora, Marketing and Sales Manager at Veritas.
“It’s not exactly an MLB endorsed promotion, but our team were thrilled when Denver was chosen to host the game and wanted to do something that would showcase some of the best cannabis in the state for anyone coming to town. for the match., “he explains.
MLB still bans marijuana use among gamers and likely won’t be doing business with the legal marijuana industry anytime soon – as recently as 2019, Coors Field was editing marijuana references during Walk-In Songs players – but if marijuana use were ever allowed in stadiums, Veritas would be “the first in line to sponsor a platform for cannabis consumption inside the stadium,” says Spadafora.
For those watching a game at home, Spadafora recommends smoking an uplifting strain like Garlic Breath or Sage N Sour to stay engaged without losing focus. But if you look at the Rockies, currently 35-48 with a 6-31 road record, he suggests something more powerful to calm the nerves, like MAC – and that includes you, Rockies owner Dick Monfort.
“Maybe if we get high together,” Spadafora jokes, “I could get him high enough that he realizes he needs to put a% @ *! Plan in place for this team!”
