UPDATE – Jan 26
The Department of Excise and Licenses would like to invite all Registered Neighborhood Organizations (RNOs) and community members to learn more about a proposed draft package of legislative changes to the Denver Marijuana Code. The proposed changes are the product of years of research and outreach, and include local incorporation of new state-approved licenses types and an equity program to provide ownership and licensure opportunities to previously disenfranchised Coloradans.
The Department of Excise and Licenses will be hosting a community feedback session on Wednesday, January 6 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. via Zoom. City staff will explain the proposed changes, and there will be opportunity at the end for members of the public to provide feedback on the proposal.
For more details please see the attached bulletin below and be sure to visit our website.
Questions? Concerns? Unable to make the session or interested in scheduling some time to chat with the Department about the proposal? Email [email protected].
