That news came six weeks after entrepreneur Ann Jordan complained that the airport was preventing her from selling pot-leaf-imprinted flip-flops and boxer shorts to one of the souvenir stores there.
Jordan, a retired teacher who earlier this year started High-ly Legal Colorado, thought it was ironic that the airport allowed Colorado flag shot glasses but not her products.
After Jordan complained, the airport acknowledged that it didn't have a formal policy on pot-related merchandise, but said it would look into creating one.
And now on November 21, the airport will hold a public hearing in order to "propose to adopt new rules regarding the advertisement and sale of Marijuana-related paraphernalia at Denver International Airport."
If it is passed, the rule would read: "It is unlawful to sell, display, or advertise any product bearing the image, likeness, description, or name of Marijuana or Marijuana-themed paraphernalia; and advertise a Marijuana-related business or establishment."
The hearing will begin at 10 a.m. in the City Conference Room, located on the Northwest side of Level 6 in the main terminal at DIA. Want to participate? Here's what the city says you should do: "Submit a written notice of intent to participate addressed to: Greg Hegarty, Business Management Services, 8500 Peña Boulevard, Room 8810, Denver, CO 80249, by mail or delivery, or by fax to 303-342-2171. Such notices must be received by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 18, 2014."
In addition, "a public comment period of 60 minutes will be provided on this proposed rule. Each speaker will be given 3 minutes to speak. Individuals wishing to speak must sign up in the City Conference Room beginning 30 minutes prior to the meetings scheduled start time. Sign-up will end 10 minutes before the meeting begins. The order of speakers is determined by the Director of Business Management Services or his designee."
