No Consuming Marijuana in Denver Bars...Yet

A pro marijuana group dropped a ballot initiative that would have allowed consumption in Denver bars.

The Campaign for Limited Social Cannabis Use withdrew a previously submitted ballot measure that would have allowed marijuana in Denver bars, the Washington Times reported. The initiative, slated for the November ballot in the City and County of Denver, would allowed bars, restaurants and other establishments to permit vaping and edibles in areas restricted to those 21 and older, and outdoor pot smoking at least 25 feet away from public property and shielded from public view.

Instead of pursing a vote, Mason Tvert, who led the successful 2012 campaign permitting recreational marijuana use for adults, will work with interested members of the political and business communities to find a solution amenable to all. If a middle ground is not found, there is always the 2016 ballot.
