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

A reader comment inspired by New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd's bad experience with a pot edible attracted plenty of additional takes. Most of them weren't terribly kind to Dowd, but this one defends her and others who react poorly to such products.

Justin Vonesh writes:

It's not about being a pussy, you fucktard. Cannabis can really cause negative issues in some people. Just because some people can't handle cannabis does not mean they are wimps or pussies. Cannabis is different for everyone. And not everyone can handle the effects of cannabis.
