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

William Breathes's report about Gabriel Campbell, who was driving a car with Colorado plates when he was pulled over in Texas and found to have five pounds of marijuana in his trunk put one reader in mind of alleged marijuana profiling.
