Two Lyons natives have taken a different angle on Colorado’s emerging marijuana industry by inventing a board game. Mike Ginwright and Robb Deeter, both of whom graduated in the 1980’s from Lyons High School, threw around the idea of making a board game based on marijuana in Colorado since they were eighteen or nineteen years old.
When medical marijuana was legalized decades later they picked the idea up again and ran with it. The result is the Colorado Cannabis Craze produced by their company, Hilljack Entertainment.Read more: Lyons Natives Create Marijuana Board Game

Your intrepid journalist, who only had to drive five blocks through the mess, was not one of the fortunate few.
