Denver Campaign Would Allow Marijuana Use in Bars
Beer? Wine? Or weed?
A campaign is underway to ask Denver voters about allowing marijuana consumption in bars and other places that only allow people over 21.
Activists who campaigned for recreational pot legalization in Colorado have launched a petition drive to allow what they call “limited social marijuana consumption” at bars.
The activists need about 5,000 signatures to get the question on November ballots.
It would allow bars or clubs to allow marijuana use as long as patrons bring their own weed and comply with clean-air laws. That means the pot they consume would have to be edible, or if smoked, consumed on an outside patio the way cigarette smoking is regulated now.
Sponsors say the measure is needed because tourists have no legal place to consume pot.
