Our post noting that the 243 citations or jailings over 4/20 weekend in Denver were much higher than during the same period in 2014 found many readers supporting the police's action.

Many compared the rules against public consumption of marijuana to open-container laws in place for alcohol.

As for the following reader, he no longer smokes pot but supports the right of those who do — although he admits to plenty of frustration in regard to some cannabis users.

Here's what he had to say.

Push, nudge and continue to screw up what you have. I am a ex pot smoker. By choice. I have no problem with people who want to smoke it. Simply put, get high legally and quit making people regret they passed the laws for you. No, I do not want to smell your weed from your car or in public places not deemed approved for smoking. Your anarchist behavior is ruining the cause many have fought for over the last 40 years. If I enjoyed the dumbing down effects from pot still I would be so happy just to have it legal finally! The man is winning here either way so wake the f—k up!
