In a recent Comment of the Day, a reader argued that patrons of pot bars — a concept connected to a social-marijuana-use proposal that could go before voters in November — would leave the establishment 90 percent less intoxicated than the typical alcohol-bar customer.

Do you all know there's a proposal to keep bars open til 4 am in Denver? Think about the ramifications of that... Try and find some sort of way to make that seem like a good idea. You can't. Selling booze for another 2 hours is going to lead to all kinds of problems, more drunk drivers is just the beginning. Why isn't anyone talking about that??
