Denver Becomes First City to Allow Marijuana Use in Bars and Restaurants

Nov 15, 2016

Denver has become the first city in the U.S. to permit the use of marijuana in bars and restaurants.

The law, Proposition 300, was declared victorious on Tuesday after last week's election, though officials said some ballots still weren't counted, the AP reports.

Colorado law is not currently clear on marijuana use in public, which has led to a range of local ordinances. Bar and restaurant owners in Denver may now choose to allow their patrons to use (but not smoke) pot indoors, with a possibility for some outdoor smoking areas.
