The Colorado Symphony Orchestra is planning a series of fundraising concerts tailor-made for the state's burgeoning legal cannabis industry. The Associated Press reports that local weed businesses have come together to sponsor what will be called Classically Cannabis: The High Note Series, comprised of four concerts culminating in a final show at Colorado's famous Red Rocks Amphitheater.

According to the Symphony's website, the concerts will figure prominently in the group's summer series. In addition to alcohol being served at the event, patrons over the age of 21 will be allowed to bring edibles, joints, and marijuana tinctures to aid in their enjoyment of the performances. However, the shows are strictly "BYOC" or bring your own cannabis, and the Red Rocks has an official ban on drugs (though that has hardly stopped people in the past).

Classically Cannabis is only the latest development in Colorado since marijuana was officially made legal in the state in January. Since then, even a pot vending machine aimed at consumers debuted in Denver. Overall, the move is certainly on trend, with other states like Maryland decriminalizing pot in recent months, speaking to the broader consensus that legal weed is, at this point, inevitable.
