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

In a recent post, Sam Levin presented one Amendment 64 task force member's argument in favor of the State of Colorado taking over sale of recreational marijuana, rather than allowing private businesses to do so. Voters don't want that kind of system, maintains one reader.

That is absolutely NOT what A64 calls for! State-run stores is the major reason Oregon defeated their initiative. I effing swear if you do this, I'll start selling.
