Reader: Denver Government Doesn't Want Pot Clubs, But the People Do

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those who weighed in believe such a measure is needed just as much as it was last year, when a previous proposal was withdrawn in a deal that involved negotiations between various stakeholders that have not yet borne fruit.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

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.
