Reader: Alcohol Is the Real Killer and Gateway Drug

Jacqueline Collins
A new year, a new legislative session that should see a number of bills that could affect Colorado's cannabis industry. Chief among them is a new proposal that could help bring social pot use to Colorado dispensaries, hotels, music venues and dozens of other types of businesses.

Marijuana-industry lobbyists, tourism companies, lounge owners and dispensary representatives are planning to submit a marijuana hospitality bill that will propose creating two new business licenses that would allow social marijuana use in a manner similar to alcohol use. It's a far broader concept than what Denver residents have seen since approving Initiative 300 in November 2016.

Will it pass the Colorado Legislature?

Says Leon: 
Hell, yes we should allow it. That's what we voted for.
Replies Teri:
 I hope not. I don’t care who uses it and am glad it’s legal but it does my breathing in and I’m sure many have same issue. You want to get high, use edibles. There are so many alternatives that smoking it just isn’t necessary.
 Pam adds: 
It’s fine for those that want to use it privately, but exposing people who don’t want to use, including children etc., is not acceptable in my opinion.
Replies Katie: 
Oh, please! Then don't go to these places or bring your kids. Do you bring your kids to a bar by chance? Fu** alcohol!!! That's the real killer and gateway drug.
Concludes Andrew:
I’m so excited to be working on all of this with my Colorado cannabis family!
