Kush, mountains, and Colorado are three things that go hand in hand, and in honor of that, the Colorado town of Moffat is considering changing its name to Kush. The town has a population of only 120, and the goal is to revitalize the town and turn it into a cannabis mecca. Hey, all they need is 300 more people!
Ken Skoglund, the town trustee and a 40-year-old resident, told The Washington Post that he hopes to see the positive changes of the cannabis industry coming to his town, but he doesn’t like the fact that a new name would mean all legal documentation for the area will have to be updated.
“It’s a good industry for Moffat,” he says, “but that doesn’t mean it should come in and change the name of the town and disrupt a whole bunch of people that don’t even care for marijuana.”
He adds that he and other residents are open to the idea of calling Moffat “The Kush Capital of Colorado,” but don’t want to see an actual name change if it can be avoided. Currently, the town is named after David H. Moffat, who was known for building railroads in Colorado. As of this writing, no decision has been made yet about whether or not the name will change.
