Denver yoga instructors, waiters and others working at social consumption spots could be tasked with figuring out which customers are too high to drive.
Denver councilwoman Kendra Black and others on the city’s Social Consumption Advisory Committee said last month that regulators should consider requiring training for the staff of permitted social cannabis businesses. Ideally, the training would help employees make sure only customers 21 and older are consuming and that nobody is getting behind the wheel intoxicated.
What training would actually look like remains to be seen. Some fear it could mean more red tape for the implementation of Initiative 300.
Black is one of the 22 people on the committee tasked with suggesting rules for social cannabis consumption permit seekers. The group is set to gather for its fourth meeting Friday morning.
