184, As Currently Written, Would Authorize The Operation Of Private Pot Clubs Within The State As Long As Local Lawmakers Agree To Their Existence.

Clubs wouldnt be allowed to serve or sell food, alcohol or weed, but would instead serve as a safe haven where pot smokers could gather and get high without risk of arrest. Colorado became the first state in the country to legalize marijuana for recreational use in 2012 and opened the nations first retail pot shops in 2014. Smoking weed in public isnt legal, however, meaning marijuana users are limited with respect to where they can smoke. We have a lot of problems throughout this state of people publicly using marijuana, said Sen. Bob Gardner, a Colorado Springs Republican who medical marijuana sponsored the bill. S.B. 184, as currently written, would authorize the operation of private pot clubs within the state as long as local lawmakers agree to their existence. The bill would require all club members and employees to be Colorado residents 21 or over and would prohibit individuals from selling weed within a club or exchanging it for renumeration. Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, isnt guaranteed to sign-off on the bill if it clears the House, however. Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, the governor said that confusion surrounding the Trump administrations policies on marijuana made him hesitant to expand the states already lax pot laws.
