The Denver City Council gave preliminary approval to loosen up guidelines that call for marijuana social consumption enterprises to operate at least 1,000 feet from schools, youngster care facilities, drug and alcohol therapy centers and city recreation buildings.

The proposal – which is anticipated to jump-start out the city’s fledgling social use plan and create new organization applications – will trim the distance specifications to 500 feet for all these places except schools, The Denver Post reported.

The possible policy adjust comes just about a year following city officials rejected a proposed “ cannabis spa and lounge” mainly because the facility was 19 feet also close to a youngster care facility.

The council’s vote is a preliminary move and will call for a final vote at a future council meeting, the newspaper noted.
