Readers: Pot Bowl shirts make Denver look stupid and/or amazing

pot.bowl.super.bowl.shirt.1.205x205.jpg
Last week, we shared a gallery of "Pot Bowl" and "Stoner Bowl" shirts occasioned by the Super Bowl featuring Denver and Seattle, cities from the two states that have legalized recreational marijuana sales. Then we asked our Facebook friends what they thought of them. The responses were widely varied, as you'll see.

Personally I think they represent Denver in a negative way.

Some of them were kind of cheesy. Might wear a couple.
Jaime Herrell writes:
The most obnoxious person at the Super Bowl party would wear this... Lamest over-used excuse to talk, since before Broncos bid to the Super Bowl. Said itttt.
Carl writes:
I don't think it's a very good way to promote marijuana legalization. They should help folks to make up their minds who are undecided in their states. I'll stick with a Bronco's jersey. Go Denver!!!

America's perceived stupidity has grown in direct correlation with football's rise in popularity. I probably shouldn't have said "makes", as correlation does not imply causation. Let's call it a contributing factor. I like many genres of music, and frankly, hate most of the electronic music I'm exposed to. Obvious troll was obviously trolling, so either a) I touched a nerve with my post or b) I touched a nerve with my post. Apologies for denigrating your beloved handeggball.

First of all, America has been stupid well before (gridiron) football achieved mainstream appeal. Secondly, the above post is quite odd coming from an EDM fanboi.

Yes and I'm kinda tired about hearing about pot everyday in the news ... It's not that exciting .... Colorado has 10000 other awesome things to offer the world ... Yeah legal pot is awesome for now.... I'm sure it'll become mundane and uninteresting soon enough

As a long time pot smoker, I gotta say stupid.

Of all the wonderful things about Colorado it saddens me that we've become the "pot state"

I don't know any stoners that actually act like a cheech and chong skit, but that is how they are all perceived and portrayed in the media.

They look dumb. A little more funny and visually appealing Pot Super Bowl shirt would be cool!

Stupid. The whole industry right now is making the state an enormous joke. I'm ashamed. Colorado is fucking this up.

In order to make a movement such as legalizing marijuana sweep across the nation, people need to be able to visualize themselves with the same mindset. If they are turned off by it, how will we get them on our side?

Caring what others think makes you look stupid.

So, Beth Sauer-Harris, you like being compared to cheech and chong as the image for a marijuana smoker??? Really? We can use medicine like marijuana and not be so daft. We are not all stoner pot heads that can't remember what we did 10 min ago. This is my point. Why should we project that type of image? Wouldn't you rather be respected as a pioneer than made the butt of everyone else's joke?

I want one! Why would it make denver look stupid I mean really? And Che Harness WTF YOU MEAN CHEECH ANF CHONG RUINED STONER IMAGE?? YOU RUINED THE STONER IMAGE BY BEING IGNORANT.... damn people dont know what they are talking about

I think Cheech and Chong ruined the "stoner" image long ago. I can't say that I'm not annoyed with the excessive and stereotypical pot advertising, but we are in the first month of a massive policy change and the birth of a new industry centered in Colorado... So it's to be expected and it will calm down over time. There's nothing we can do about being the butt of all stoner jokes because it doesn't matter how mature we act as a state. Anti-marijuana groups have never cared about the truth of marijuana and will look to vilify it by whatever means become available.

It's the exact reason people don't like "stoners." But who really cares.

Marijuana smokers aren't a big joke, but if we glorify getting "f'ed up" then the rest of the nation may think so. Read my post again. I never said smokers are a joke. My posts are not passive, they are straight forward. Think about it first... @che harness.

Marijuana smokers aren't a "big joke". I'm sorry that you feel that way.

Young and stupid. We should be more mature so the rest of the country doesn't think we are a big joke!

Not Denver. Just the individual wearing it looks stupid. To each their own.
