Ladies, you can't be mad at us men for smoking hella tree. Like we'll share with you ladies!? Wtf!? But to sit here and say we are childish and not men because we enjoy a joint is not only ignorant but idiotic. Just because we like to party makes us not men??? Johnny Depp parties almost every night. Is he not a man?

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
