From the article, it sounded like you might be able to smoke in public, as long as you walked across people's private lawns instead of the sidewalk. Unfortunately the law requires that you own the private property or have implicit/explicit toking permission of the owner. 12 5312102013024203863.PDF

On the upside, my legal-eagle interpretation is that people can toke up in public as long as they've got copious quantities of pot on them...and everyone under 21 will be required to own large (> 1 ounce) stashes at all times:

"Section 1. Subsection 38-175:
(a) It shall be unlawful for any person under the age of twenty-one (21) to possess one (1) ounce or less of marijuana.
(b) It shall be unlawful for any person to openly and publicly consume one (1) ounce or less of marijuana."

This case has been going on for a while - Denver went big for A64, and the people pretty much demanded that the city council license retail stores, but there's a few pants-wetters on the CC, and they have tried a bunch of tactics like you could not smoke in back yard either, closed drapes inside, etc.  It was beyond silly at the start, but the people spoke out and they realized that they were on very shaky ground and chose to do the right thing.

I dunno, I would like to say five years, I would like to think that President Obama would do the necessary before he's out of office, since he can basically make a couple of phone calls, sign some papers and reclassify it tomorrow.  But I think that we WILL see quite a few states in the next few years - I figure that once California and New York go for retail Cannabis sales, the Federal gov't will FINALLY figure out which way the M-F'ing wind is blowing and do the right thing.

However, we have to be compassionate to all the drug warriors who could lose their jobs in this sea-change.  I do believe we need to budget adequate funds for treatment of their addiction to drug money.

Wolf892: So, am I the only one that hates the smell of pot and the stupid mumblings that ramble out of the mouths of people high on pot?
Also, how do we teach kids that drugs are illegal and bad for them if we keep legalizing previously illegal drugs simply based on their popularity? What's next, meth?

I REALLY hope meth is next!  You have no idea how much I want meth to be legal.

Not that I'm interested in the meth.  I'm just sick of being treated like a criminal at the drug store because I don't want my nose stopped up.

mbillips: skatedrifter: I believe this opens the door for the possibility of pot cafes with outdoor patio smoking sections, which is awesome.

No it isn't. Smoking is smoking, a filthy, disgusting habit that should be furtively enjoyed by its idiot adherents in garbage-strewn alleys, not among decent folk. I don't care if it's weed or tobacco; keep that shiat to yourselves.

HotWingAgenda: The Rocky branch of my family keeps begging me to come out and spend some time bonding. I keep running out of excuses not to.

Don't put it off for very much longer. He's not getting any younger, you know.

You can do something legal on your own property? Thanks, government. You're so nice to allow people that privilege. Are not our masters benevolent, to lighten the chains to such a degree?
