One of the big challenges to the Colorado cannabis industry has been the restrictions imposed upon it with respect to consumption. While consumers can enjoy alcohol in bars and clubs, cannabis consumers don’t have this option. Fortunately, voters will have a chance to weigh in on the issue in November.
A recent effort from Denver NORML failed to qualify, but the “Neighborhood-Supported Cannabis Consumption Pilot Program” spearheaded by Kayvan Khalatbari of Denver Relief Consulting has succeeded in getting on the ballot, where it will be referred to as the “City of Denver Cannabis Consumption Pilot Program.” The program, if approved, would expire at the end of 2020 or sooner.
