Reader: All those white-collar f*cks in Douglas County understand is money

When we shared our post about the $3.5 million in marijuana tax revenues collected by the State of Colorado in January, we asked if readers think cities and counties that have banned recreational sales will reconsider when they see how much money is coming in. Plenty answered "yes," often passionately. Here's one example.

Lydia Cabrera writes:

Yep, watch the hypocritical cities come out and ask for some of that money. I refuse to spend my money in Douglas County or any other cities where MMJ or rec is not allowed. All those white collar fucks understand is $$.
