In this week's cover story, Gregory Daurer reveals that long before Colorado legalized marijuana, the state had a reputation as the glue-sniffing capital of the country. This information caught plenty of readers by surprise, including one who shares a not-always-flattering list of other things for which Colorado is known.
Says Michelle Lee:
I thought CO was known for being the biggest cocaine usage Mecca per capita. Glue? No, these people are on cocaine and are as stoned as Honalee. Bunch of spoiled brats with beards and micro-brews and newly divorced cougars on the loose here. Glue is for some hardcore users.
