Welcome to the Denver City Council - Legislative Services blog!  

Connect with us to keep on top of the latest legislative developments in your City.  Whether you want to know about how the City’s annual budget is set, what’s new with recreational marijuana regulations, how to sign up for “Bike to Work Day,” or other City policy issues, this blog is for you.  You can expect concise and timely information on emerging issues, as well as background information to help you engage your City government.   

Link in weekly for the latest information including our inaugural post below on City Council’s ongoing work to implement Amendment 64—passed by Denver voters last November to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana. 

How should marijuana businesses be taxed?  On June 24, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. in room 391 of the City & County Building, City Council’s Special Issues Amendment 64 Committee will discuss this and other issues relating to implementation of Amendment 64. 

Approved by Denver voters in November 2012 by 67%, Amendment 64 allows adults to possess up to one ounce of recreational marijuana.   Perhaps less well known are the amendment’s provisions related to licensing of retail stores, cultivation, product manufacturing, and testing facilities, and the  taxation of these businesses on both the state and local levels.   City sales tax is the main topic at the June 24, 2013 meeting.  There will not be public comment at this meeting, but if you have questions, comments, or concerns please contact your councilmember.

Check back next Monday (June 24th) for the next post.  A hint about the topic – Colorado Bike to Work Day is June 26, 2013.  Sign up at
