Inside POTUS club, which was raided last 4/20 weekend.
This take led to more discussion about how social marijuana use regulations might work in Denver — including the ways that alcohol and cannabis consumption might coexist.

Bars will lose a ton on drink sales if they let people smoke weed, not to mention people will be twice as trashed and very likely become a problem. If ya ask me It doesn't make sense for nightclubs unless they sell joints or something.
