Mile High Mellow? Will Democrats take up Denver's 'weed over alcohol' option?
As Denver prepares for the Democrat orgy of politics some are wondering if this could be the first marijuana fueled convention under the city law that allows the carrying of small amounts of marijuana. However if any delegates decide to smoke their dope as opposed to just carrying it then they could be arrested as the police will be operating under state laws that make using it illegal.
Meanwhile protestors are out on the Denver streets already. Be careful out there!
Denver police are being pressured to respect a ballot initiative approved by city voters three years ago that essentially made it legal for residents to carry "small amounts" of marijuana. The pot promoter Mason Tvert says the city should give everyone the "option of using marijuana instead of alcohol. After all, it's alcohol not marijuana that fuels riots, violence and property damage." But dope smoking is still illegal under state laws and those are the ones the police will be following next week.
