Reader: Pot Edibles Are Too Expensive to Give Away to Trick-or-Treaters

As we recently noted, the number of cases in which Denver trick-or-treaters received marijuana edibles this year was zero.

That was the same total as last year, despite hype about possible disaster from the Denver Police Department and advocacy groups such as Smart Colorado.

Why haven't pranksters dispensed any of the enfused goodies?

This reader has a very simple explanation.
