Premium Pete's Cannabis and High Rollers dispensary are partnering with The Hemp Connoisseur Magazine to host the Cannabis Charity Open benefiting the Denver Colorado AIDS Project (DCAP).

DCAP has been helping people with HIV/AIDS for more than 30 years by providing counseling, transportation, housing and supplies. They also offer free testing and clean syringe access to help reduce the spread of AIDS, none of which would be possible without contributions from a supportive community.
