Our Ask a Stoner columnist recently sat down with Governor John Hickenlooper.

Among the topics they discussed was the upcoming marijuana-tax-holiday: September 16.

Among the interesting responses to the conversation (which also included Andrew Freedman, Colorado's director of marijuana coordination, was the following take.

In it, a reader argued against buying marijuana on the 16th while throwing an elbow at supporters of presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders — and several others pushed back.

Bret Egan writes:

I challenge stoners, who normally advocate higher taxes for everyone else, especially those who are "feeling the Bern," to avoid buying weed on the tax holiday.

Ruth Hartsell writes:

What about those of us with our heads screwed on straight and haven't felt the Bern? Less taxes means more money in my pocket. Am I good to go?

Leon Wilcox writes:

I don't know anyone that smoke weed who advocates for higher taxes, sorry.

Glenn Boyd writes:

Maybe you need to light one up, bro.
