Earlier this week, in response to Denver Mayor Michael Hancock's proposal to arrest or fine marijuana smokers whose weed could be smelled next door, we posted our suggestions for five Colorado places that smell worse.

Then, when we shared the list on Westword's Facebook page, we asked our friends for their picks -- and they held their nose and came through big time. Below, count down our readers' photo-illustrated, extremely aromatic top ten.

Number 10:

"Vault toilets in State Parks statewide."

Number 9:

"The area of NE Denver/Commerce City, the combined smells of the oil refinery plus the Michelin re-treading place, plus Eaton Metals (all in the same neighborhood) is enough to make anyone ill. Pot would be a great improvement."

Continue to keep counting down the top ten stinky Colorado places according to you.

And here I thought the Secret @DenverPolice Files on @MayorHancock & his #DenverPlayersSugar Ho's would've made the list !

The Denver Mayor needs to get out and walk the city instead of riding his his Limo then he will smell things much worse than weed.

Wherever westward writers write this stuff. That's the stinkiest place on earth. Haven't these "writers" moms heard of abortion? When you have something as crappy as a westward "journalist" festering in your womb you should exercise your right to abort!

What a stupid list. Number 2 isn't even quantifiable. Why the writer chose to include an attack on ”yuppies” is just a sign of ignorant editorializing.

how the FUCK do you not mention the dog food factory. This reads like someone who just moved here and started working for the Westward wanted to do a story to try and fit in...

#4 is ridiculous. The Yampa River does NOT smell like sulfur, the hot sulphur springs next to downtown stink, but the river itself is VERY clean.

Damn, arrest weed smokers if you can smell it next door? What about cig smokers? Interesting way to start a "stinkiest places" article.

I think it's included in the NE Denver/commerce city one. We live in Swansea right in the middle of Purina and the refinery and such, it's brutal. Especially on hot days.

Now, on to something positive. The Top Ten List of BEST Smelling Places in Colorado: I'll start with a few. 1. The brat/polish sausage vendor cart at 19th & Wynkoop on game day. 2. Fresh cut grass at City Park. 3. The sulfur (yup, sulfur) smoke drifting between the downtown buildings after the 4th of July fireworks at Coors Field and Civic Center Park. 4. The lilac bushes around the city neighborhoods in May. 5. The local downtown breweries when they're making a new batch of beer. 6. The smell of rain in Denver after a long dry spell. 7. Sautéed garlic and onions always coming from the apt building at 32nd/Osage (really). 8... 9.... 10...

WestTurd isn't on the list despite the endless complaints by butthurt readers and commenters.

The Purina dog food plant doesn't smell too bad, I've actually drove by it before and thought it smelled kind of yummy lol. Greeley for sure smells the worst in my opinion.
