Reader: People I Meet Support Bernie Sanders Over Hillary 10 to 1

A recent poll suggested that Senator Bernie Sanders's rapid rise in polls prior to the upcoming Colorado caucus may have been fueled in part by his evolving policies about legalizing marijuana.

In the past year, his approach to cannabis has become much more progressive than that of his rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Hillary Clinton.

In response, most readers said that while they think Sanders is on the right track when it comes to marijuana, their reasons for supporting him are wider and deeper.

Judging by this reader's experiences, Sanders may have plenty of reasons to feel good on March 1, the day the Colorado caucus takes place.

I work at a gas station in Denver, and of the people I talk politics with, Bernie outnumbers everyone else at least 10:1. I support Bernie, and I support weed, but I'm not voting for Bernie for weed, the black market has our backs if some douchenozzle gets in. I support many other Bernie policies. I vote based on policies, not political parties.
