Reader: If you can only grow twelve marijuana plants in Denver 'hoods now, grow them huge!

Yesterday, we previewed the Denver City Council's vote about marijuana grow limits in residential neighborhoods -- and restrictions of twelve plants per location passed. But one reader has an idea about how patients and caregivers can work around this change.

Here's the comment, by a reader called The Spleen, who namechecks councilwoman Jeanne Robb in his pull-no-punches post:

Once again, DCC proves itself completely inept and totally incapable of tackling issues of substance. Does Jeanne Robb have any fucking clue how large you can grow 12 cannabis plants? I urge every MMJ patient in the city to grow the maximum number and grow them as large as you can! I hope her neighbor grows his/her 12 plants into towering forests of cannabis that release their beautiful aroma all over that goddamn neighborhood. Of course, in the meantime while these clueless assclowns debate about the number of plants you can grow in your own home, the DPD continue to assault, murder and rape as many members of this city as they can manage. Congratulations, Jeanne Robb. You have just insured that the majority of people in the city of Denver wouldn't piss down your throat if your heart was on fire.
