Marijuana-legalization critics' assumptions about pot users are offensive, advocate says

Earlier this week, we rounded up the cool reaction by some national pundits, including the New York Times' David Brooks and the Daily Beast's Tina Brown, to the start of legal recreational marijuana sales in Colorado.

Among those with negative responses to the pieces we mentioned was Betty Aldworth, deputy director of the National Cannabis Industry Association. Aldworth found many of the takes to be narrow and ignorant, as well as perpetuating stereotypes of marijuana users she finds reprehensible.
