Denver council votes to allow pot smoking in public view
DENVER -- After a few hours of testimony from a passionate public, the Denver city council voted 10-3 Monday night to allow citizens to smoke marijuana on their front porches and on any private property even if it's in view of the public. It's the final vote on one of several ordinances related to public consumption of recreational marijuana, which will become legal on Jan. 1, 2014.
