We're still collecting comments aplenty on our Amendment 64 revenue-projection post and its assorted updates and rebuttals.

Here's one that stands out: an argument that all of us have a desire to intoxicate ourselves in one way or another.

If the no side can't admit that marijuana is safer than alcohol; and that the desire to alter consciousness is a fundamental human trait, they don't have a logical dog in this fight.

It's like a yappy dog that can't admit that they are annoying.

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
