Colorado Passes Law That Bans Serving Liquor And Cannabis In Same Venue

Opponents of a state ruling that would prevent bars and many restaurants in Denver from offering on-site marijuana consumption said the ruling would overturn a law approved by voters and force people to sneak around while they use pot and consume alcohol.

The new rule announced Friday bars liquor−license holders from applying for a permit to allow the consumption of marijuana. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment said using alcohol and marijuana together increases impairment.

Mason Tvert, a spokesman for the national Marijuana Policy Project, said the measure approved by voters this month would allow servers to keep track of customers who drink and consume cannabis products instead of forcing them to go outside or hide behind closed doors.
