Backers of I-300 want fewer rules for when and where you can use pot in public

Here are some of the I-300 backers’ requests, broken down:

Allow businesses that sell alcohol to also allow cannabis use as long as they’re not being consumed at the same time in the same area.

Make the same allowances as above for events.

Clarify the restriction on having consumption areas near “other places intended for use primarily by persons under 18 years of age.”

Do not make government-issued IDs a requirement to enter consumption areas because consumption areas are already off-limits for people under 21. That way, if someone were obviously older than 21, they could enter the area without ID.

Consuming alcohol and marijuana in Denver businesses could be council decision

The Denver group tasked with shaping how Initiative 300 should roll out might want to leave one issue to city regulators and elected officials: Should business patrons be able to consume cannabis and alcohol under the same roof?

The Social Consumption Advisory Committee wrestled with that question Wednesday during its third meeting on suggested rules for social cannabis consumption permit seekers. The choice on whether people can dual consume in businesses might ultimately be made by elected officials.
