The inquiry of whether to let on-site cannabis use throughout the city of Denver has been the topic of quarrelsome debate for all of 2015. As of right now, activists and local officials have not yet been able to find a similar floor to put in front of citizens. It is this undetermined hiatus at the discussion that has advanced a newly organized section of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) to enter the debate in an endeavor to put the bills for recreational cannabis use this year.

During the summer of 2015, the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), the organization that was acknowledged with the passing of Colorado’s Amendment 64, revealed that they were putting together a bill with the goal of letting cannabis be consumed in specific areas of places where alcohol is sold. The initiative was named the “Limited Social Marijuana Consumption Initiative,” and its goal was to allow bars as well as restaurants to have a portion of their area to those who wanted to smoke recreational pot.

However, as the initiative generated enough signatures to put the issue on the ballot in last November’s vote, the MPP announced in September that they were taking the proposal back to try to work with city officials and dining and hotel services to make a proposal that would compromise for everyone involved. Their aim was to start meeting with nearby lawmakers and members of the business community worried about the possible effect of recreational use to make a more favorable measure to offer to voters later on this year.

But Denver’s newest NORML section, led by executive director Jordan Person, is concerned that the hunt for similarities on the problem will have no effects, which is why the organization is going to jump over the lack of initiative launching.
