Denver voters decided to move Colorado’s experiment of treating marijuana like alcohol another step forward and OKed public consumption of the drug in certain spaces.
Advocates carried Initiative 300 to a narrow victory passing the ordinance with more than 53 percent of the vote as of Tuesday morning. Another 141,225 of the 302,505 votes — about 47 percent of votes — opposed the measure.
Votes from military and overseas residents might still remain uncounted. Results remain unofficial until the election is certified Nov. 22.
