Colorado’s Top Slang Word Isn’t What You Think It Is
If we had to bet on Colorado's top slang term, we'd probably say something like, 'fourteener' or, well, anything weed related, but it's neither of those. In fact, it surprisingly has nothing to do with weed (which is technically a slang term itself).
