Comment of the Day

Reader: I'd rather deal with a stoned skier than a drunk a$$hole

One way to tell if a topic strikes a nerve is when a Comment of the Day about it inspires more people to share their thoughts. That was the case when it came to reader responses regarding an executive's warning about public pot-smoking at Arapahoe Basin. Here's another memorable take on the topic.

Jamison Scott Thomas writes:

Legal or not people have been and will continue to smoke wherever they want. I guess I'd much rather have some stoner skiing down the mountain then some drunk asshole who's been getting tanked down at your bar all day.
