Although marijuana has been legal for recreational use since late 2012, proposals that would permit social consumption businesses in Colorado have failed for six straight years. But on May 2, just a day before the  session ends, House Bill 1230 passed through the Colorado Legislature after the House approved technical amendments made in the Senate. And the wait may have paid off for social consumption advocates: This bill is far more expansive than any social use measure proposed before. Under this bill, dispensaries would be able to apply for a tasting room license similar to the one used for breweries in this state, while businesses such as hotels, restaurants, music venues, art galleries and yoga studios could apply for private consumption licenses and limited pot sales.
