The Denver City Council has recently decided to become more welcoming than before to the cannabis community, voting to approve a draft bill allowing cannabis products to be delivered. The first bill passed by the council will allow marijuana products from dispensaries to be delivered directly to tokers by any third-party vendors.
This bill will now allow Denver's 220-store recreational dispensary limit, which has been in place since 2016, to be lifted. The Denver City Council unanimously approved the bill on Monday. As a result, pot delivery in Denver is expected to begin this summer. These major legal reforms have been in the works for many years, as local authorities and companies have worked to maximize the cannabis industry as a whole in the state.
PSA: Those who wish to deliver weed or open a brand new pot shop must adhere to the state's social equity guidelines.
Under the new guidelines, it requires that the drivers transporting the weed to the destination will be required to track GPS, be restricted on how much money they can carry, and will also have to scan ID cards upon each delivery.
The second most notable improvement from the authorized bill would be the legalization of consumption bars where customers could carry their buds to smoke. Clubs would also now be permitted to sell limited quantities of marijuana for the benefit to customers of legal toking age.
However, the substance can only be used or smoked at the business site.
"This is potentially the most massive changes to marijuana rules and regulations since initial legalized sales began," spokesman Eric Escudero spokesman for the Denver Department of Excise and Licenses."
