COLORADO: Denver is pleased with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra‘s efforts to align its bring-your-own-cannabis fundraising concerts with laws that authorize — but still regulate — marijuana use in Colorado, the city attorney said Wednesday.
“We are pleased the (symphony) revisited their planned events and worked to come into compliance with state and city laws,” city attorney Scott Martinez said in a brief statement issued by Mayor Michael Hancock’s office.
Earlier, Martinez had expressed concern that audiences were going to smoke marijuana in public, which is illegal even though selling and consuming marijuana has been legal under Colorado law since January. On Tuesday, the symphony said three events first announced in April, dubbed Classically Cannabis and scheduled to kick off later this month at a private Denver gallery, would be invitation-only. The symphony also removed information about the events from its website and is refunding tickets purchased already.
