Denver City Council: The new version of the marijuana ordinance is still unacceptable. Do NOT criminalize adults for using marijuana on private property!

Last month, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and his allies on the city council introduced a blatantly unconstitutional law that would criminalize adults’ use of marijuana — even on private property — if others report seeing or smelling it. Fortunately, they decided to go back to the drawing board after the Denver Post editorialized against the proposal and thousands of people signed our Change.org petition calling on the council to drop it.

Unfortunately, the council is now considering a new version of the bill. They call it a "compromise," but it is not nearly good enough. It would still criminalize adults for using marijuana on their own private property, which is simply unacceptable. The Denver Post has once again conveyed its opposition to the overreaching measure, and we need to once again convey our opposition directly to the council members.

Sixty-six percent of Denver voters approved Amendment 64 because they wanted marijuana to be legal for adults. They should not have to forfeit their property and privacy rights in exchange. It's time for the council to respect the will of the voters and stop trying to find ways to punish responsible adult marijuana consumers.

Please help defend Amendment 64 by adding your name to this petition calling on the Denver City Council to drop this ridiculous proposal.

Please oppose the new version of the Denver marijuana ordinance. It would still criminalize adults for using marijuana on private property, which is simply unacceptable.

Sixty-six percent of Denver voters approved Amendment 64 because they wanted marijuana to be legal for adults. They should not have to forfeit their property and privacy rights in exchange.

I hope the council will respect the will of the voters, drop this misguided proposal, and stop looking for ways to punish responsible adult marijuana consumers.
