Dear Stoner: Does the towel-under-the-door method work? My job makes me travel on the West Coast. Getting legal weed won't be the issue, but smoking it somewhere will be.

Dear Up in the Air: You could always eat edibles or vaporize THC oil, which carries a much weaker smell and dissipates faster than smoking flower. But while I’m very aware of those options, I still usually choose a joint. Some of us were just born to puff.

The towel-under-the-door method is a simple concept, but an effective one.

The towel-under-the-door method works on the road or at home, and it’s a pretty simple concept. You just block the largest remaining airway between your closed room and the rest of the world — and at hotels, where the air conditioning flows like wine, that’s the crease between the door and floor. It’s not a foolproof barrier, but it should get the job done if you have an open window and aren’t reckless. And the towel also helps muffle those coughing noises coming from your room at 10 p.m.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
