In Wheat Ridge, Colorado, we’re one of the lucky few places where marijuana is legal across the board – not only for medical uses, but also for personal recreation as well. Whether you’re a newcomer to our beautiful area or, perhaps, a newcomer to marijuana, improve your experience by knowing the answers to these commonly asked questions.
In January 2014, Amendment 64 legalized marijuana in Colorado. Since then, Wheat Ridge residents and visitors alike can legally carry and smoke weed. Since it was legalized only for private and personal use, however, there are some restrictions on where you can smoke it.
Since weed is legal for personal and private use, the preference is – of course – to smoke it at home, where no one will bother you about it. Unfortunately, this may not be an option for everyone, especially tourists.
Colorado’s 2006 Clean Indoor Air Act poses some trouble for those who can’t smoke at home. The law, which limits cigarette smoking in public places to tobacco-based businesses, was modified to prohibit smoking marijuana in all public places, including those that normally allow cigarette smoking.
So if you can’t smoke marijuana at home, where in Wheat Ridge can you enjoy your purchases? Here are a few alternatives:
Smoke in a weed-friendly hotel. If you’re coming to Colorado for the weed, be sure to book your stay at a marijuana-friendly hotel. Being able to smoke in your room will make life much easier for you.
Smoke at a friend’s house. If your problem is just that your landlord or roommates won’t allow you to smoke at home, you might be able to smoke at a friend’s place. Offering to trade free weed in exchange for a place to smoke should prevent anyone from feeling put upon.
Check out alternatives to smoking. Vaporizer pens offer a low-odor alternative to smoking, plus there are many other alternatives such as topicals, tinctures and edibles.
