Pot at a pub? Colorado agencies tell Denver they’re not budging on indoor marijuana smoking

Want to vape weed at a bar? It’s not happening anytime soon, according to a new letter from five different Colorado state agencies to the Denver City Council.

A city task force has been working for months on suggestions to make it easier for people to use cannabis at businesses. The task force had asked open-ended questions in a report about whether the state should reconsider some of its laws.

The letter from the state, sent earlier this week, shot down the idea of allowing indoor smoking or the use of marijuana at liquor establishments — two possibilities that the city task force had asked about — and it left open another big question.

The state administration wants to ensure “that all Coloradans can breathe clean air in public spaces and in workplaces, and that means protecting Coloradans from secondhand smoke as a result of tobacco, vape and marijuana,” the letter stated.

Councilwoman Kendra Black said she didn’t know why the letter mentioned vaporization, which has widely been interpreted to be allowed indoors under the state clean air act. “I don’t know if they’re sending a message. I don’t know. But currently it is allowed,” she said.

Vaporizers are part of the plan for one prospective cannabis business, the arcade Vape and Play. A state spokesperson said Friday the letter was not meant to suggest a change in vaping law.
