THE FOLLOWING BUSINESSES AND ORGANIZATIONS HAVE STOOD UP TO PROTECT DENVER'S ATMOSPHERE:
Governor John Hickenlooper opposed to Denver Initiative 300.
“Don’t be fooled. If marijuana activists have their way marijuana could be allowed in any enclosed indoor space in Denver including bars, restaurants, workplaces, retail stores, and many other places. While the proposal prohibits “smoking” in any place where it is prohibited by the Colorado Clean Air Act, vaping marijuana would be allowed through the use of electronic smoking devices.” Learn more from GASP here.
Marijuana smoke exposure has a greater and longer-lasting effect on blood vessel function than exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke. To learn more, check out ANR’s factsheet Secondhand Marijuana Smoke.
“League of Women Voters of Denver opposes 300 because of our position on Citizen Participation in Government, which advocates for increased opportunities for citizen input into governmental process.” Read LWV’s open letter.
“On October 8th, INC Registered Neighborhood Organization delegates voted to strongly oppose Initiated Ordinance 300. 300 will allow marijuana use inside and outside Denver businesses without posting or prior notice to neighbors or neighborhoods. 300 will also do away with formal hearings which have been required in Denver for over 40 years.” INC – neighbors protecting neighborhoods.
