Lawsuit filed over alleged weed-laced chocolate at Denver County Fair

An attorney has announced a class-action lawsuit against a company accused of giving people samples of a marijuana-laced chocolate at the Denver County Fair’s “Pot Pavilion,” which was supposed to be drug-free.

Denver County Fair spokeswoman Dana Cain said the fair was investigating at least three separate cases of attendees reporting they were drugged after eating a Full Melt Chocolate bar. She said at least two of those people went to a hospital after they became dizzy, sick and confused. They tested positive for THC.

Boulder-based attorney Corey T. Zurbuch said the suit was filed Thursday in the name of Longmont resident Jordan Coombs. It names as the defendant Beyond Broadway LLC, which does business as Full Melt Chocolate and LivWell.

Like Richard Jones, who told 7News he was drugged while visiting the pavilion, Coombs said he ate the chocolate Sunday.
