There is no state or city law that would prevent cannabis consumers from vaping marijuana in places that receive a social consumption permit.
Smoking joints and blunts would still be barred within yoga studios, concert venues and other establishments due to the restrictions put in place by the Colorado Clean Indoors Air Act. But the act leaves a loophole for vaping marijuana inside permitted businesses and venues in Denver, said city attorney Marley Bordovsky.
Bordovsky specializes in Denver’s code enforcement rules and sits on the Social Consumption Advisory Committee. The committee met for the second time Wednesday to continue ironing out suggested rules and regulations related to Initiative 300.
In theory, the initiative passed in November would allow just about any kind of business that doesn’t sell marijuana to get a cannabis consumption permit under the Neighborhood-Supported Cannabis Consumption Pilot Program. The city started putting out permit application forms Jan. 21 and hopes to finalize all the rules and start issuing permits during the summer.
Permitted businesses would still have to follow local and state rules including not serving alcohol where marijuana is consumed and complying with the Colorado Clean Indoors Air Act.
