Investors look to bring pot-friendly movie theater to Colorado
DENVER -- Colorado has already set many marijuana milestones, but the drug is still far from fully mainstreamed. While Amendment 64 calls for cannabis to be regulated in a manner “similar to alcohol,” would-be pot bars and other public smoking venues have run into problem after problem. That’s inconvenient for local smokers, who can always toke up at home. But it creates a catch-22 for tourists looking to get high without breaking the letter of the law: It’s essentially legal for them to buy pot, but illegal for them to smoke it in any place they might visit, or to take it home with them.
