Colorado is the first state to legalize recreational use of marijuana. CBS correspondent Bill Whitaker reports from the Mile High City that pot is now a part of the everyday culture. He was invited to a marijuana food and wine party in downtown Denver. Whitaker, a middle-aged African American man leaning against a banister with his arms folded in front of him, stood out at the event. He said the event catered to young professionals.
Weed pairing parties — aka Pot Pairing, Weed & Wine parties — have become popular in Colorado. There are thousands of strains of pot, so cannabis connoisseurs are suggesting the perfect wine, beer and cheese to go along with your choice of cannabis. Here are five tasty Weed & Wine pairings provided by The Cannabist. Whitaker’s report will air on 60 Minutes on June 7, 7pm on CBS.
