Final Rules Governing Marijuana Designated Consumption Areas

The final rules incorporate the significant and major protections for residential neighborhoods which INC supported.. It should be noted that the final rules eliminated the requirement of a ventilation plan for vaping. The rules also include a provision for de-licensing which would allow for a liquor licensed establishment to designate a social consumption area in a liquor licensed establishment provided that alcohol is not being served.


Denver marijuana rules for social consumption areas mostly supported in public comments

Denver’s Department of Excise and Licenses will have to decide which group if any it will listen to as it finalizes its rules later this month. The city hopes to start reviewing and approving applications for social cannabis consumption areas and events starting in July.
Prior to a public hearing on the rules Tuesday, Molly Duplechian with the Denver Office of Marijuana Policy said the city received about 70 comments on the rules. More than half were supportive of what was proposed, Duplechian said.
