Cannabis Consumption Permits
In November 2016 Denver voters approved Initiative 300, granting businesses the ability to apply for a permit to allow for adult marijuana consumption in designated areas.
Denver Excise & Licenses has adopted the rules and regulations that will govern the issuance and enforcement of the city’s new Cannabis Consumption Business and Cannabis Consumption Special Event permits.
Permit applications will not be accepted and permits will not be issued until the city has added the permits to its licensing platfiorm. The department intends to begin accepting applications by Aug. 31.
Rules & Regulations
Denver has adopted the rules and regulations that will govern the Cannabis Consumption Permits.
Excise & Licenses led the rulemaking process to establish a robust regulatory structure for businesses that wish to pursue this new license. The Social Consumption Advisory Committee (SCAC) met six times in early 2017 to make recommendations to Excise & Licenses on possible rules and regulations related to the administration and regulation of Initiative 300. Members of the SCAC consisted of city, community, business and public health representatives, and other stakeholders.
