Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Our post about the announcement by Denver NORML to create  a marijuana social use initiative inspired some debate about the necessity of such a rule.

But not much.

The majority of those who weighed in believe such a measure is needed just as much as it was last year, when a previous proposal was withdrawn in a deal that involved negotiations between various stakeholders that have not yet borne fruit.

This reader thinks the support for such a measure is strong.

Robbie Ratay writes:

It will pass and the city knows it, which is why they talked it off the ballot. Last year, it could have been voted on and passed.

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.
