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.

Not nearly as many times as whiny butthurt commenters keep bitching about repeated Lamebook posts.

The Jefferson County Republican Headquarters. The dog food factory smells like roses compared to the bullshit foaming from the mouths of rabid wing nuts.

Does anyone see anything wrong with this article? That Purina factory has been giving people serious problems and it is much more than stinky.

The south side of the 2650 block of West 3rd Avenue, just west of Bryant in Denver just SW of the I-25/US-6 interchange, is a steady and potent location of significant stench and odor.  The stench of sewage is perennially overpowering and staggering, and the ground vegetation along the long warehouse side of A & H Finishing Products grows like it would in a jungle with the ample saturated soil lurking just below the surface.  The plume of sewage probably extends beneath the buildings for quite a distance from its source beneath 3rd Avenue.

The combo smell of Zimmerman Metals and The Wonderbread factory(yeast and metal coking at the same time is pretty nauseating) off I-25 and 58th.

Number 6 = Purina Factory.  Westword scared to get sued for a mention of Purina?

How did you leave off the Purina dog food factory????? Depending on the wind it'll literally make you vomit in your car while driving past it on i70. The Coors plant in Golden smells worse than a sewage treatment plant...OK I see what's going on here; you picked non-commercial smell-offenders in order not to single out and piss off any larger businesses in the Denver area...safe/lame move (probably forced by your editor) but misses the biggest offenders for sure.

Now you have a general idea of what areas to avoid. Denver is still a great city.

walk down any back alley behind Broadway ..or many of em downtown..you'll find homeless people shittin & pissin all night long. I used to own a business on broadway/bayaud & there was a new pile of shit in the ally every day... Would have welcomed the smell of weed... not to mention the homeless sex & crack use in the ally's ...wake up & smell the shit Hancock... My middle fingers salute you. Take some of the weed tax money & make some nice public restrooms.

This is more than a little disheartening for someone seriosusly looking to move to Denver.

I can't believe there is no mention of Fort Morgan, CO. I lived there for two years and between the sugar beets and the cargill plant where they slaughter and burn the blood.
