(HuffPost) The Denver City Council overwhelmingly voted to allow adults to smoke marijuana on their front porches and private property — even if the pot smoking is in clear public view.
In a resounding 10-3 final vote Monday evening, City Council finally approved the measure eliminating a controversial front-yard pot smoking ban introduced in November, which previously appeared poised to pass with a 7-5 vote.
"Fortunately, common sense ultimately prevailed," said Mason Tvert, communications director of Marijuana Policy Project and key backer of Colorado’s marijuana legalizing Amendment 64, to The Huffington Post. "If adults are able to consume alcohol — and even smoke cigarettes — outside on their private property, there’s no logical reason why they should be prohibited from using a less harmful substance."
"City officials need to move on and focus their time and attention on getting the necessary regulations in place to ensure these businesses are able to open on January 1," Tvert added. "There is no need for further proposals designed to prevent adults from being able to use marijuana responsibly."
