“ The first public hearing and city council discussion on a bill that would allow Denver’s marijuana shops to stay open until 10 p.m. are set to get underway at Monday evening’s council meeting.
The city council’s special marijuana issue committee tentatively approved the measure in early April that would add three hours to the time Denver medical and recreational marijuana shops are allowed to stay open.
Currently, Denver requires stores within its city limits to close at 7 p.m. Other nearby municipalities, like Glendale and Edgewood, let pot shops stay open until midnight. Shops in Aurora, Boulder and Commerce City are open until 10 p.m.
The original bill had proposed a midnight closing time, but that was amended by the marijuana committee after weeks of discussion with marijuana business owners, law enforcement and marijuana proponents.
The bill passed committee by 12-1 and 11-2 votes.”
