Reader: Marijuana stereotypes will fall apart as more people partake

Our post yesterday about Rolling Stone's take on Denver as ground zero for "The New Stoned Age" started a conversation that looked at the issue from all angles. Below, peruse the views of a reader who thinks the more attention the Denver scene gets, the better it will be for everyone.

Here's the thing: As press grows and folks come out of the shell as those who partake...people will realize that the average "pot head" isn't who you surmise it is, & that's definitely good -- because it changes the face of the industry to reflect its community, and hopefully will change people's perceptions so they can quit being so goddamn judgmental. Fucking lushes.
