We recently posted about Indio, California deciding to ban medical marijuana after a committee of officials did cannabis research in Colorado.
They were guided for much of their tour by law-enforcement representatives here, who took them to Stoner Hill and otherwise emphasized problems they say are associated with legal pot.
One reader saw the humor in anti-marijuana types having more influence outside their home state than they do within it.
Here's what he had to say.

This is too funny. So Colorado cops got tired of whining in their own state (no one would listen to the fabricated lies), so now they gotta go to other states and whine some more there? Too funny.
