Denver City Council Flip-Flops, Voting to Allow Pot Smoking in Front Yards Staff

Last night the Denver City Council, which last week voted to ban pot smoking in outdoor areas on private property that are visible to people on streets or sidewalks, reversed itself. The council approved an amendment introduced by Councilwoman Susan Shepherd that restores a provision protecting marijuana consumption on private residential property, whether indoor or outdoor, as long as the consumer has the owner's consent. Assuming the current version of the ordinance wins a second vote next Monday, Denver residents will be allowed to consume marijuana on their front porches, patios, and balconies.
