Reader: My neighbors' pot smoking is so annoying I'm moving out of Denver

After the Denver City Council passed an amendment allowing pot smoking on front porches and front lawns, most of the comments that followed were supportive of the move -- but not all. Here's the post from someone whose own bitter experiences with a pot-smoking neighbor has left him at wit's end.

Greg Eckenrode writes:

We have neighbors who have smoked so much, underage as well, that our house was filled with the smoke. This is wrong. They have been told. They continue to do it. And it hasn't been legal. Guess I will just sell my house and move out of Denver.
