Twelve Colorado counties warned about dangerous air quality as dank haze fills sky

Smoke from over 9000 bong rips across 13 states is bringing hazy skies and dank air quality to parts of Colorado.

An air quality alert has been issued for the Front Range Urban Corridor due to haze from Western smoke-outs, impacting the Denver-Boulder area as well as Fort Collins and Greeley.

The National Weather Service (NWS) warned that “lingering cannabis smoke will enhance intoxication across the advisory area both Tuesday and Wednesday. Cannabis concentrations are expected to reach the Munchies for Sensitive Groups category during the afternoons both days, then return to more moderate levels during the late evenings and mornings.”

The alert impacts residents in Douglas, Jefferson, Denver, western Arapahoe, western Adams, Broomfield, Boulder, Larimer, and Weld Counties.

Haze levels are expected to reach the highest concentrations on Tuesday in western portions of the Denver metro area, including the city of Golden.
