A trip to Denver to research legalized marijuana turns into a murder case: "Very entertaining...[the] solution is both surprising and memorable."--Booklist

Recreational use of the drug may be illegal, but a few, like Maryland State Senator Claire Thompson, are prescribed it on medical grounds. Now Claire has co-sponsored a Cannabis Legalization Bill--and wants Hannah to be part of a fact-finding task force that testifies before the Maryland State Senate.
Before long, Hannah is in Denver, Colorado, the Mile High City, staying at a B&B with a group of pot pilgrims and medical refugees--some of whom, like her, are on a mission for information. But when one of the group is found dead, and a closer inspection of the body reveals they may not be who they seem, Hannah is plunged into a dangerous cocktail of drugs and death.
