For today's weed news we go to the great state of Colorado.
Colorado has become one of the world's most prominent cannabis destinations. But one thing that's still missing from the Colorado weed scene is a place where people can consume their legal cannabis in social settings outside their private homes.
But now it seems like all of that could change very soon thanks to House Bill 19-1230. The newly-introduced bill wants to allow so-called "hospitality establishments" the right to create designated cannabis consumption spaces in the same location where legal cannabis products are sold!
"Coloradans voted for the freedom to choose cannabis as an alternative... But we have not extended similar liberties to the consumption aspect of cannabis legalization. With this legislation, we are upholding the will of the voters while providing a safe and responsible place for people to consume outside of parks and off of the street," said one of the bill's sponsors senator Vicki Marble.
Last year, former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper vetoed a bill that would have allowed for so-called "tasting rooms" to open throughout the state. This new bill is essentially (among other things) another attempt at making such "tasting tooms" a reality.
"Cannabis patients and retail customers alike deserve to have a place to go find each other, create community and consume marijuana safely... This legislation is about harm reduction and monitoring intoxication. It's about honoring the reality that if we benefit economically from the sale of cannabis products we should also be respecting where and how it is consumed," said Cindy Sovine, a lobbyist for the industry.
If the bill is passed, spas, hotels and other hospitality-related businesses could be free to set up designated consumption spots as early as 2020.
And that's what's up in Colorado!
