Pot smoking on front porches okayed by Denver City Council


Yesterday, Denver city councilwoman Susan Shepherd predicted that an amendment allowing people to smoke pot on their front porches and front lawns — a reversal of a ban that seemed certain to pass — would be approved at a meeting last night, and she was right. The new rules sailed through.
Not so for another proposal that concerned Shepherd — one that would have prohibited smoking within 1,000 feet of schools even on private property, like a home. Denver Westword has the full details.
