Denverite: Social Cannabis Use Could Hit Denver in July

Social marijuana could hit Denver by July: Everything you need to know about the draft rules for businesses

By Adrian D. Garcia of Denverite

The committee tasked with shaping Initiative 300’s roll-out met for the final time last week. Now Denver officials can hash out the details of where people can consume cannabis throughout the city — and we already have a good idea of what’s up for discussion.

A draft set of rules for social consumption areas is expected to be released by April 25. Before they’re finalized, people will be able to weigh in May 25 at a public hearing, according to Denver Excise and Licenses.

The department responsible for licensing Denver’s pot shops hopes to start approving businesses to open social consumption areas as early as July.

I-300, in a nutshell, allows just about any kind of business that doesn’t sell marijuana to apply for a cannabis consumption permit under the Neighborhood-Supported Cannabis Consumption Pilot Program. If approved, a business owner can set up space for people to use marijuana in their business.
