Personally I think some of the things mentioned are absolutely ridicules! Thats like them saying we are going to start enforcing the law on noise pollution to where if your music is loud, will fine you and put you in jail. But also to an extent I do believe that there is a time and a place to smoke pot and the consumer should exercise responsibility and common sense. I'm from OK now living in Denver and let me tell you CO citizens that you all got a good thing here versus where I'm from. If you're even caught with the littlest bit of weed, your a$$ is grass no pun intended and will stick it to you hard with stupid fines, probation, and jail time. So in closing just want to say keep smoking :-)_~ but do the right thing.

I didn't know Boulder made a constitutional amendment to disallow cigarettes? Oh wait, they didn't. Just a city-wide ordinance, which doesn't directly violate our state's constitution. Hence the ACLU's involvement.

I don't see the ACLU lining up to sue Boulder for people smoking a cigarette on the Pearl Street mall...

= more profiling and senseless arrests. The very same ppl our Mayor has vowed to protect, will be the ones put in the system b/c of a smell? I don't like cigarette smoke but there are designated places always to smoke, just as marijuana should have.

Isn't the Mayor up for re-election next year? I don't think he get's a 2nd term if he continues proposing ideas as stupid as this.

It's absolutely ridiculous. How far will they go? Will we get in trouble now for where our dogs pee while on a walk? Every year, we become less free.
