Reader: Dopers should stay in their parents' basement glued to their bongs

marijuana.smoke.thinkstock.205x205.jpg
Our post about 4/20 rally attorney Rob Corry informing city officials that marijuana smoking would take place at the event despite threats to cite anyone who lights up in public got people talking. Here's an especially memorable take from someone who appears to dislike the festival and those who attend it.

WillieStortz writes:

What a disgrace. I cannot believe the city is letting the dopers back to destroy the park. How many people are going to be shot this year? It's time to end this charade of a rally.

We voted for legalization so the dopers would stop whining and just stay in their parents' basement glued to their bongs.

That rally is a spectacle. Mostly scums. Be honest. ICP fans and those kinds of people. Its the typical people you see at Civic Center Park hanging out at any given time of the day not working. Its just on a massive scale. I thought it would be more college kids and hippies. I went to a party college, I would have don't the same thing but be honest, you're just there to have a good time. Who cares about the cause. No, it was mostly homeless people, gang affiliates, and high school kids. The "lower class". Seriously look at the pics online. 


Not so much a celebration, more like a show of disobedience. Yes its legal. We get it. Its like people trying to smoke in public because they can, in front of cops because chances are they wont do anything. I get it. But most of the people that go to the 420 thing downtown are not people any respectable person would want to be seen with outside of the "smoke out" in Civic Center Park.


I have my red card. I am pleased with the progress Colorado is making and is definitely at the forefront of Marijuana legalization. I am proud of that. But the 420 rally is pretty lame.


What's funny is the person who wrote the original statement said dopers are destroying the park. There is festivals in Civic Center Park often where people drink lots of beer. Are the "alcoholics" destroying the park? Its not that that person gives a sh*t about the park, he or she doesn't like "dopers".

Hell-to-the-no! Get off my cloud if you're trying to bring me down! No doubt, dopers, stoners, and potheads enjoy getting high in the comfort of home; but smoking weed is a social event that voters of Colorado appreciate. Stop the hate and congregate!

Marta Gonzales Occhiuzzo: English, please. Seriously can't even tell what you're trying to say. Syntax, grammar, and spelling are necessary parts of effectively conveying your point. Sincerely, a doper.

Why out of what was said doper is what you idiots seem to dwell on? You do smoke it is dope so calling you a doper is an insult. That's a joke in it's self!!!!!!

Lol, dopers. In all honesty, though, I don't know a single person who went to the rally last year who I could call "successful" or even "mature". In fact, an apt description would be "largely unable to manage their own life". I owe this more to the fact that most of my fellow 'doper' buddies were working and contributing to society and couldn't attend than I do to them being losers, though... You know what, I don't think they would have anyway. Stuff like that is only really cool when you're in your early twenties. Legalization has done two great things: smashed the taboo about something harmless (beneficial, in my opinion), and made it easier to pick out the kind of 'dopers' that I'm just not gonna get along with. But seriously, lol dopers.

@Steven Palmer - actually, your narrow personal experience doesn't mean anything at all. You need to know more successful people. I know more successful people than unsuccessful people and the majority are pot smokers. Maybe if I knew a bunch of losers, they might smoke pot too, but I wouldn't really know. So you should change your ratio - right now at 100:1 it sounds like you know far more losers, and maybe that's the real problem innit?

Lol the "dopers" are your bosses. They are the attorneys you hire and doctors you visit. They teach your children, prepare your food, fix your cars and in general make your world go round.

Love it. FYI the most successfully employed drug users are Cocaine users. They are your Doctors, attorneys, people on wall street. Etc. I highly doubt there will be one extremely successful high profile person that smokes the Ganga at the 420 shoot out this year.

FYI the shooting was not related to the festival or cannabis in any way. There are lots and lots of Violent crimes in Denver and this was in relation to one gang member shooting another who tried to use the crowd to hide... So stop making comments without any facts to back them up.

This person must not see all the "dopers" coming out from behind their masks after legalization of "dope". Colorado stands to make 100,000,000 off "dope" this year. Even past the medical aspects, you are a real backwoods, closed minded "dope" if you can't see the good in "dope". I own a growing business and I'm a "doper", have been for 30 years now. Really!??? Smoke one and you might see different. Keep mouth shut unless incerting a j full off " dope". Grab a fatty and be happy.

For every "successful" pothead that grows up to be president, there are 100 or more that never do anything with their lives other than get continuously stoned and babel about the miracle benefits of weed and how many "successful" people they know who smoke it.

Anyone who still says "dopers" is clearly not in touch with the times.

I know a lot of successful smokers who have done very well in life but the people who gather at the rally do tend to be idiots. I went in my teens and I was most definitely an idiot :-)

Megan Anderson

What an idiot. It is so sad that some people choose not to see the benefit due to some stereotype they can't seem to let go of. Awwwww... Did the cool kids in high school not smoke their 70's dope with you and now you're taking it out on the rest of the world? For the most part, those "hippies" are successful pot-smoking members of society and your still a bitter jerk.

"glued to their bongs"??? wow!!!

Its seems that Willy doesn't know much about marijuana! FYI Willy Marijuana has been proven helpful for treating the symptoms of a variety of medical conditions.

I hope he isn't pointing his finger to many of medical marijuana users in Denver.
