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

Our post about 4/20 rally attorney Rob Corry informing city officials that marijuana smoking would take place at the event despite threats to cite anyone who lights up in public got people talking. Here's an especially memorable take from someone who appears to dislike the festival and those who attend it.

What a disgrace. I cannot believe the city is letting the dopers back to destroy the park. How many people are going to be shot this year? It's time to end this charade of a rally.

We voted for legalization so the dopers would stop whining and just stay in their parents' basement glued to their bongs.
