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.
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.
There will be a public hearing to review and take feedback on the proposed Rules & Regulations.

Khalatbari and two of his pizzerias are among five plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the state’s revenue department. The group says Initiative 300 trumps the state’s rule. The lawsuit claims Denver’s law went into effect first, and additionally, says the Department of Revenue’s Liquor & Tobacco Enforcement Division doesn’t have the power to regulate marijuana.
The gist of the blowback: scrap Colorado’s regulation.
The bill creates a marijuana consumption club license. The license is subject to the same licensing requirements as other retail marijuana licenses. The license may be issued to a person who operates an establishment where retail or medical marijuana may be sold and consumed. The club’s sales are limited to the same limits as a retail marijuana store or a medical marijuana center. The club may not serve food prepared on site or alcohol.
