Colorado continues to be the most progressive state when it comes to marijuana. They were one of the first states to legalize the recreational use of marijuana in 2012, and now Denver has passed a measure that could give a whole new meaning to the Mile High City!
The Doctors weigh in on Denver’s just-approved city measure that would allow the drug to be used in bars and restaurants, with some conditions. First, establishments must get neighborhood approval first. Patrons would be required to bring in their own marijuana, and it could only be used inside if it is not smoked. The new law lays out the possibility for smoking it outside in the future, but not yet.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says, “A weed oil martini has a certain panache to it, but it’s a slippery slope, because it’s mixing things that maybe people have not tried together before. You’re possibly going to get reactions. You’re definitely going to get more high, and that’s a whole new issue [with regards to] driving.”
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork understands why many bars might have wanted this new law to pass. “Marijuana is an appetite stimulant… I do not think marijuana should be illegal, having said that, I do not think marijuana should be ubiquitous,” he says, explaining he worries about it getting to a point where it appears everywhere.
The Doctors also worry about the effects of secondhand smoke, especially for minors, that might come from marijuana being more prevalent in public.
