Plan for Denver social marijuana use permits includes waivers for every customer
After months of wrangling, Denver’s proposed rules for social pot use permits set the stage for July applications
May 12, 2017
Businesses that obtain permits to offer Denver's first-in-the-nation areas for social marijuana use would have to require patrons to sign waivers as they enter. They would have to follow a ventilation plan if they allow the use of vaping devices indoors.
And if they have a liquor license, they would have to halt any alcohol sales and seek a temporary suspension of the license while marijuana use is occurring, preventing any "dual consumption" by customers.
Those are among rules proposed by the city's top licensing official Thursday — and they are the chief sticking points that probably will register objections in coming weeks from backers of last fall's Initiative 300.
