I’m glad Denver decriminalized hallucinogenic mushrooms. It’s not that I think the status quo was in need of repair —at 11 arrests and 3 prosecutions last year, it’s the poster child of a corner case. It’s also not that I want ’shrooms around my kids —I really don’t. It’s certainly not that I intend to try them —I’ve never done drugs and don’t intend to start now. The reason I like the idea is because the next time I tell someone where I live, the response won’t be innuendo about marihuana. It will be innuendo about magic mushrooms. Think of all the bad jokes! I’ve heard Denver’s homeless problem is... mushrooming. What are the most popular rooms in Denver? Mush-rooms! Granted, the pizza topping joke shift from oregano to mushrooms won’t be as clever, still, all things considered I welcome the shift. While you think-up your own bad joke, have a donut. I find they help the creative juices. Also, feel free to share any groaners you create.
