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

Our coverage of last week's CannaSearch, touted as Denver's first marijuana-industry job fair, got a lot of people talking.

Many of our readers were enthusiastic about the event, including this one, whose reasoning isn't the least bit smoky.

Stan Salazar writes:

Can't believe there were people who couldn't wait for a potential interview or job long enough without having to get blown. I might go to the next fair to apply. I'm sure my odds would be better working in the industry because I don't smoke that shit and because I have no reason to steal and sell on the side. It would just be a job. Then again, I wouldn't want to be working when the Feds roll in to clean house.
