Denver Police Cracking Down on Craigslist Marijuana Sales

If you’ve ever spent any time on Craigslist you know that there are some people on there selling weed, harder drugs and even sex. In Denver, as one might imagine, there are more than the normal amount of people selling marijuana.

There are hundreds of them it seems, which should be of no surprise. You can find anything on Craigslist and in a place like Denver – a city with a legal recreational cannabis industry doing battle with a long-entrenched black market – you can find a lot of weed.

If you were super bummed that the 420 Rally in Denver was cancelled last weekend, take solace in knowing that it has finally officially been rescheduled! As you probably already know, the event that was set to celebrate the epic non-official holiday of April 20th (420) on the 16th was canceled due to bad weather. When the announcement was made, there were no plans for a reschedule or even issue refunds at the time.

Treating Marijuana Like Alcohol Means a Place to Smoke

Treating Marijuana Like Alcohol Means a Providing Place to Smoke

As many of you know, the sale, possession and growing of a limited amount of cannabis is allowed in Colorado for those aged 21 years or older. In Denver there are many places you can buy cannabis, yet the only place you can smoke it is in your own home or on someone else’s private property if they give you permission.

In other words, someone who drinks alcohol can go to any number of bars or lounges or restaurants and drink as much as they want, but someone who has legally purchased cannabis does not have that option.

According to authorities, the raids were part of a two-year investigation that will still take a few more months to complete. No arrests were made, but you can be sure copious amounts of cannabis and equipment were seized; it’s hard to tell as officials are being tightlipped on details.
