But according to one reader, Colorado's already had that conversation. Says Ryan:
This squabble genuinely makes little to no difference in the eyes of most Coloradans. Support for it is continuing to increase, we're raking in tons of money from it, and underage use of it is at an all-time low. There is no arguing that this pot is getting more and more potent. I have no idea why that's such a big deal to come to grips with and why it's such a point of contention; harmful effects from 'more potent' cannabis are still trivial and death is still virtually impossible.Adds Chris:
The long overdue conversation about potency? Are these clowns serious?
