Denver City Council Set to Deliver Symbolic Slap in the Face to Marijuana-Friendly Voters
The Denver city council is poised to give final approval today to an ordinance that would prevent people from smoking pot on their own property if they are visible to the public. The police chief says it would be a low priority, and even the Denver Post thinks it's stupid, but it looks like that won't stop the council.
The ordinance passed a first vote on a margin of 7-5 last week, and the council votes typically don't change.
And here is the Denver Post's Monday editorial, which slams the council for pursuing the idea. "The proposal is unenforceable, will provoke fruitless disputes and, if it were followed, would restrict many pot users almost exclusively to the indoors," the Post noted.
