Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

In our report about the newly launched Drugged Driving campaign, a Colorado Department of Transportation spokeswoman said specially trained drug recognition experts are often able to tell who's on which medication or illegal narcotic. One reader's sarcostic post suggests some doubt about that...

WOW! Cops that can actually spot who's medicated and who's not! That's the best thing since "see thru glasses." Just like walking down the street and being able to see who is wearing underwear, the medi-pot-cops can actually walk down the street and actually pick out the medicated from the crowd. Just fu*k**g amazing this new technology!

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.
