The Denver City Council may roll back the mandatory closing time for cannabis retailers from 7 p.m. to either 10 p.m. or perhaps midnight under a proposal being considered by a special committee.
But don’t expect an imminent decision. The issue will remain unresolved for at least a few more weeks, as the council solicits additional public input.
Mandated closing times for Denver marijuana shops makes them less competitive than many other retailers that are technically located in other metro-area municipalities and suburbs that allow MJ shops to stay open as late as midnight, the Denver Post reported.
The council may wind up agreeing on a middle ground, such as extending hours until 10 p.m., the Post reported.
